You may want to look at subversion also, touted as a CVS replacement

I talked to a guy on IRC once who claimed to keep his entire win98
install in CVS... it certainly has it's merits as far as an uninstall

However, beyond that, I can't comment. I don't know CVS at all and am
currently forcing myself (at the barrel of a gun, think Fight Club) to
introduce myself to subversion...
