Source control software for Linux needed

Hi, I'm a developer working within a small team, creating Oracle Forms and Reports, as well as other SQL objects and scripts. We currently store all of the above on an NT server box but would like to move all of these to the Linux box on which our application server is running. To do this we need to institute some form of source control so we can control changes made to the code as well as having versions of the software easily accessible for regression testing etc.
Does anyone out there know of any source control software for Linux - commercial or otherwise - that might meet this requirement? A GUI interface for this tool would be great although we could probably get away with a command line tool. If you could reply with details (website addresses so we can take a look would be a plus) I'd be grateful.
Thanks and regards, Geoff

does this help any?

and i hear something about Aegis, so maybe you can look into that also..

and here is a quote from the CVS-RCS howto
A source code control system is a MUST to manage the changes occurring to a software project during development. Developers need a complete history of changes to backtrack to previous versions in case of any problems. Since source code is the most vital component of any software project and software development takes a huge amount of time and money, it is very important to spend some time in safe-guarding the source code by using source code control systems like CVS and RCS
i don't know if any of this will help you but hopefully it gives you a stepping stone.
