Question setting up a CVS server in redhat 9.0

Need of some help...

I am a newbie to linux and am trying to setup a cvs server using redhat 9.0 for work. Its been rather confusing but so far I have done the following

1. extract cvs-1.11.6.tar.bz2
2. cd cvs-1.11.6
3. ./configure
4. make
5. make install

then I was able to do the inital setup of cvs by:

1. export CVSROOT=/cvs
2. cvs init
3. cvs checkout CVSROOT

can someone guide me through the rest of setting up the server...i think i should be adding the following line to /etc/inetd.conf, but there is no file by that name.
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/cvs pserver

Much thanks

Redhat 9 does not use inetd, rather, it uses xinetd. You would not add that line to xinetd.conf, rather create a file called "cvspserver" in the directory "/etc/xinetd.d/" with the contents:

service cvspserver
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/bin/cvs
server-args = --allow-root=/cvspserver
disable = no
