I don't know if you *need* to use ssh, but it can't hurt.  Simply configure
ssh to allow your users to log into the CVS server machine---I prefer
without passwords using ssh-agent and ssh-askpass, but your preferences may
vary.  After that works, simply have everyone set CVS_RSH to ssh on the
client machines.  I've used this method for a while now (on Linux), and it
works seamlessly.
