  Ok, I see by modifying it that it has not changed.  I added the file with
the Users I was testing with and noticed the update to the CVSROOT
directory, but I am still not able to log in with any of the users listed
within the file even if I update it directly.  I've changed the passwords
but its still not allowing me access, for the User that has the system
account I get an incorrect password error.

But it's $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd that's significant to CVS, not
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd,v which is what you checkout.  passwd is *NOT*
intended to be managed by CVS (doing so creates numerous security
problems), so the version in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd is not
automatically updated when you check in changes like the other
administrative files are (unless you've added it to checkoutlist).
