Well, there's not really a 'right' way to use bzr.  What you probably
want, to mirror the CVS workflow most closely, is a branch on your Linux
server at home, which you then checkout[0] wherever you want to work on
it.  This will require you to have those branches up-to-date whenever
you want to commit to them, as with CVS.

There are other ways to work, but you can investigate those while using
this one, as Bazaar is extremely flexible in the workflow it allows.
