'apt-get' is a Debianism (http://www.debian.org); you can also use
'dselect', which is a little friendlier, if a bit bewildering at first
(there's *so* much *stuff* in there :-) ). If you're using
RedHat, you can use rpm; Slackware uses tarballs (.tar.gz or .tgz)
which can be untarred using 'tar xzf xxx.tar.gz'. I don't
remember what disk cvs is on, but it's probably one of the 'd' disks,
or possibly 'n'.
I'm not familiar with SuSE, Mandrake (although it probably uses rpm),
Phat, or any of the other variants of Linux distributions to help
you much, if you have one of these.

Since your Linux box is not on the Internet, either directly or
through a proxy, it's not really applicable. You'll want to
set up your Linux box on the Internet before you worry about CVS.
That said ... Linux has excellent proxying capability (squid),
firewalling, and masquerading. However, investigation of these
capabilities is outside the scope of this particular newsgroup;
you may want to subscribe to comp.os.linux.setup.
In any event: good luck. :-)
