Eclipse CVS - web project acting "funny"

I'm using MyEclipse 4.1 and Eclipse 3.1.2. So far, I absolutely LOVE MyEclipse but now I'm having some minor annoyances w/ CVS. I setup a gentoo server box here in my home office and installed CVS on it. I'm very inexperienced w/ CVS and relatively new to maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

Anyhow, I "shared" the web project and added it to CVS but when I try to commit the top-level of the project (project name is "MyProject" w/ all of the sub-folders below it) - it doesn't list anything to commit so they do not get committed. When I commit a plain ol' Java project (library) I see a list of files to be committed and they clearly get works fine. If I were to pick out the "src" folder in the project and commit works for just that sub-folder...but when I try it for "web" (where I've got my web project i.e. WEB-INF, etc.)...again I don't see any files to commit and therefore nothing gets committed.

What am I doing wrong?

On the Java Perspective, right-click on the project name and select the "Team/Synchronize with Repository" menu option.

What does it do?

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
