Stop anonymous CVSROOT checkout

I'm running a Debian Sarge system with a cvs server installed via apt. It works fine for system users to login, check out modules and commit changes.

I've also setup anonymous read-only access with the use of a readers and a passwd file. My question is related to this.
When logged in anonymously it is still possible to do:
cvs co CVSROOT
and get the contents of the CVSROOT dir. Is there anyway to restrict this so that only system users can check out the CVSROOT module? I'd rather that anonymous users couldn't get their hands on the files in the CVSROOT directory.
