CVS will work, but you'll be checking in and storing full binary files with
Word and PDF documents, plus you won't be able to do funky merges, etc. like
you can with source (be text, and line-based).
Most of my web development work has involved CVS; this includes graphics
files (jpg, png, psd, gif in the bad old days), image development (there's
nothing like arsing up a psd file and checking out last week's), and
database development (schemas change), etc.
[ Tortoise is a good Windows Explorer integrated thingy for people new to
CVS, there's a Nautilus one of these in development at the moment. ]
What was missing from CVS that prompted your question?
