That is a nonsensical command.  You should read the manual:

        <http://ximbiot.com/cvs/manual/>

You need to login first (just one time per repository), then do the
import.  You should also never run CVS as root (or anything else, for
that matter, unless you really have to) -- by default, CVS won't allow
you to commit changes as root:

        cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/home/cvs login
        cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/home/cvs import document "dee" "deep"

If you're going to be using the same repository a lot, you can avoid the
long -d option by setting (and exporting) $CVSROOT.
