Help with terminal password entries
I run PCLinuxOS, and the terminal won't allow me to enter passwords. I've had this problem before with different distributions of Linux, it just won't let me type when it gets to the password part.

Not sure if this will apply to your case, or not, but usually, the passwords won't show up as you type them but they are being entered. Just enter your password and then press enter to see what happens.

This is what it says in the terminal:
[brian@localhost ~]$ export CVSROOT=:*pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/wine
[brian@localhost ~]$ cvs login
Logging in to :*pserver:email@example.com:2401/home/wine
The asterisks aren't really there I just put them there to get rid of the smileys.
I did enter the cvs password "cvs", following this tutorial, but it did not work obviously.

I'd recommend just downloading the source directly from the website. Never been a huge CVS fan.
Download the .tar.bz2 file to somewhere, and extract it with the command
tar xvfj wine-0.9.5.tar.bz2

Well actually, it looks like it did work! When you login to a cvs server, it will only say something in case of error. When it works, it just returns to the bash prompt. So, nothing is wrong here.
