With apache, one can run virtual servers -- same apache installation,
same (mostly) config, just different documents, like this:

http://dev01.some.domeain/ -> /webdev/dev01
http://dev02.some.domeain/ -> /webdev/dev02
http://dev03.some.domeain/ -> /webdev/dev03

(And you make your DNS resolve all of the above to the same ip, or use
ip aliasing, or whatever works for your particular situation.)

Then each developer has her own sandbox, w/o having to run multiple
webservers. I don't know if iPlanet can do this...

Just for ideas, here's some links about how others have done web
development using CVS:
