If you're just getting into source code control, then I'd strongly
recommend bypassing "legacy" systems like CVS and Subversion. Most of
the world seems to be moving to distributed system like git
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_%28software%29).

You can host your own git repositories, or you can use a third party
hosting service like github (http://github.com/).

I moved all of my projects from Subversion to github
(http://github.com/davorg/) a year ago and I'm very happy with it.

Cheers,

Dave...
