You should read the documentation better. CVS has it way of working, and 
until you don't understand it you will not be able to use it properly. 
Trial&error it's not the best way.

The "cycle", very basically, is:

1) Create the repository
2) *Import* files into the repository
3) *Checkout* files locally to create a sandbox

Now you can

a) Pull new and modified files and folders from the repository via "update"
b) Send changes to the repository via "commit"
c) Add new files and folders via "add"

Be sure to understand the differences between "import" and "add".
