'tis in the FAQ...
create a passwd file in the CVSROOT file like so:
This presumes the presence of an anon user on your system and also that
you want to anon user not to have a CVS password. If you want to give anon
a password, use Your Favourite Crypted Password Generator to put an encrypted
string in field 2; if you don't want an anon user on your system use field
three to map to an existing user.
