I have checked some posts on installing CVS and have been disappointed. I find a lot of general entries to type in that don't explain what they do or how they should be modified. I get the same error pretty much every time I try.

I would like to find someone out there in the Ubuntu community who can explain how to setup a CVS for Eclipse to a complete idiot. Let's call this an Idiot's Guide to installing CVS on Ubuntu Hardy with no esoteric Linux background required. I guess I just don't want to end up in these endless searches for how to use 'vi'. 'sudo', etc. I want it explained so that I don't get lost on another long Linux learning session for un-godly line commands and qualifiers. There, I guess I got the aggravation off my chest. Sorry for venting but I just want to install CVS without doing a semester in school researching.
