If possible use a WinNT+ machine as server so you can use cvsNT as service.
(or even a linux machine, doesn't have to be powerful :)
If not available you need to have a shared drive. cvs can cause problems on
that, read in the mailing archives. But as you're Windows only it might work
Then you need a client, be it the pure command line cvs or some GUI like
WinCVS. After setting up the repository (on command line with simple
'cvs init S:\RepoPath' (S like shared drive, RepoPath what you like but
preferably without spaces) you can continue with adding/importing/
checkouting :) /committing etc...
