The trial installation guide for linux/unix is not available yet - but install is straightforward, eg: on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 x86:

$ sudo /sbin/chkconfig --add cvsmanager
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cvslockd start
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cvsmanager start

Note: CVS Suite 2009 is still undergoing regression testing and so a recommended customer release will not be available for a few more days (or longer if we find problems).
