I finally found a minute to post a question. As I have been sitting in the hospital a lot lately I have been learning CVS. I have been able to get a repository running on a Linux box and I am tunneling through SSH for access. All fine and dandy. But now I have a couple of questions.
1. Should each project have it's very own repository or is it ok to share a single repository with several projects
2. When I imported a bunch of files into my repository for the first time and then I went back and checked out the project, each directory contains a CVS folder in it. Even my package folders each contain this CVS folder. Is this normal?
3. My repository is located at /var/CVS. I have chmod 777 on this folder (which I know is probably wrong) but I wanted to give access to it from any user on my Linux box. I created the initial project using 1 account. And when I try and checkout the project using the other user on my Linux box (testuser) I get errors telling my things like it can't lock the files and what not. Is there anything else I need to do in order to allow multiple users use acess a single project?
Thanks.

1. Whatever feels right for you... I believe most installations have a single repository and several modules.
2. Yes, it's normal.
