If your version of Linux uses xinetd instead of inetd, you'll be
interested in the following addition to the manual:

If your system uses xinetd instead of inetd, the procedure is slightly
different. Create a file called '/etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver' containing
the following:

service cvspserver
   port        = 2401
   socket_type = stream
   protocol    = tcp
   wait        = no
   user        = root
   passenv     = PATH
   server      = /usr/local/bin/cvs
   server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/cvsroot pserver

(If cvspserver is defined in '/etc/services', you can omit the port
