In order to configure the CVS server, modify the /etc/inetd.conf

But in the RedHat 7.0 version software, there is no /etc/inetd.conf
Where is the file of /etc/inetd.conf or similar configuration file in RedHat

RH7.0 uses xinetd, which stores its configuration in /etc/xinetd.d/<servicename>

You add files to that directory to add services: create a file cvspserver there and fill this in:

# default: on
# service cvspserver
service cvspserver
        disable = no
        id                      = cvspserver
        env                     = HOME=/home/cvs
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        port                    = 2401
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        log_on_failure          += USERID
        server                  = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args             = -f --allow-root=<your root here> pserver

The /home/cvs dirctory created to work around CVS bug #1, the "cannot access /root/.cvsignore" error: create this directory, make it owned by root, readable by all, and not writable by anybody, and CVS will be happy.
