[cvsnt] Sorry. Rookie question. Can the group file in CVSROOT be checked out?

A number of the files in CVSROOT have "*,v" files, which makes it seem 
that they should be edited by checkout and commit. When I do an update on 
those files, though, I get back a response of "M" and nothing changes in 
either my copy or the server copy. I am listed in the CVSROOT/admin file. 
The "CVSROOT/group" file is an example of this behavior.

Should I be editing "group" in a sandbox, and commiting changes? Or is it 
a file like "admin" that I should edit directly on the server?
