No "cvs" is supposed to appear here! The command

     export CVSROOT=:pserver::/home/cvs

is just meant to set the environment variable CVSROOT to the required
value before you start using cvs.

Can't reproduce this, but what kind of shell are you using? If it's
csh or tcsh or something similar try to replace

     export CVSROOT=:pserver::/home/cvs

(which works for sh, bash and ksh) by

     setenv CVSROOT :pserver::/home/cvs

Everything else hopefully should work unchanged.
