You have to start out by reading basic info on CVS:

Start here for example:

Without basic understanding you will get nowhere and a mail list
is not a replacement for RTFM and other studies.

And Please do not send me list responses in private!
Send *only* to the list. I will read it from there.

	In WinCvs you select the folder in your sandbox where the new
file is
	The files already under source control will appear in the file
	The files not yet under source control will also be visible but
with an
	icon with a ? character
	Select the one you want to add to the module
	Click the Add button on the toolbar (there are 3 to choose from
	depending on the type of file)
	Now the file icon changes to a red "document" icon
	Select the file again if it lost focus
	Then click the commit button (the red up-left arrow)
	In the dialogue that comes up enter a message on why you are
adding the
	Then click OK
	This is all, the file is now added to the module and will be
	for all others to use.
	The location will be the same as the other files in the folder
you are
	operation inside, all files in a working folder come from the
	repository folder, so this is natural.
