like someone mentioned, it doesnt matter where you put it.
my supfile is in /root, but its just preference.
ive noticed you keep mentioning that you wont be using X, and you
are thinking you need to deinstall your cvsup or something...
you dont have to do that, just use use -g when running cvsup to tell it
not to use a gui. for example, cvsup -g -L 2 path/to/supfile
