Use different definitions for the -d option, and simply init them.

cvs -d /path/to/first/repository init
cvs -d /path/to/second/repository init

Then just have your users use the appropriate path when checking out the
code from the server:

cvs -d :ext:server:/path/to/first/respository co foo
cvs -d :ext:server:/path/to/second/respository co bar

Generally referring, of course, to common commands like update, commit,
tag, and so on.  Commands that don't work against an existing checked out
area (export, checkout, rlog, rtag) will need the appropriate -d option.

In this set up, it might be wise to not set a CVSROOT environment variable,
but instead, always explicitly use the -d so you don't accidently try to
act upon the wrong repository.
