unable to use cvs command

Hi everybody:

I am using Reddhat 9 linux distribution. I tried to download a software from a cvs server. The instruction was:
#cd /usr/src
#cvs login

When I enter cvs login #export CVSROOT=......, it doesn't download the software. It just get back to the #prompt. And when I enter cvs login, it prompts -bash: cvs: command not found.
I tried cvs --help, it also prompts command not found.

Mr.centa had a different problem in the same field and Mr. martin helped him. I appreciate a reponse from anyone of what I should do to have a cvs service on my machine.

So install cvs. As you're using RedHat I would suggest you use an rpm but compiling it from the source works for me.
