CVS is pretty easy to learn, but to help you get started building
emacs from CVS, here are the basic commands I use:

$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir emacsbuild
$ cd emacsbuild
$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ cvs -z3 -d co emacs
$ cd emacs
$ ./configure
$ make bootstrap
$ su -c 'make install'

Then, to try it out, just run /usr/local/bin/emacs.

If the build fails, you can always replace the cvs command with 

cvs -z3 -d co -D "2 days ago" 

and keep trying larger values for the 2 in "2 days ago" until you get
checkout one that builds.

Hope this helps,
