Root Structures

There are a few possible root structures for Proto-Indo-European roots
(variations on C-C or C-C-C with a vowel thrown in somewhere, or one
of the C's turned into a vowel).  I understand that virtually all
Semitic roots are triconsonantal.

What do roots look like in languages with overwhelmingly CV syllable
structure?  CV or CVCV?

Do people's conlangs have well defined possible root structures?

Boxcars are pulling an Ed of sorts out of town.
