How do I check the latest version of Emacs out of CVS?

        I  have  been   told  that  the  only  way   to  support  SMTP
authentication in emacs is to get  the CVS version.  I went to the GNU
Emacs web site, and found out the emacs commands to get it via CVS:

cvs login
cvs checkout emacs

        So,  like I was  told I  ran those  two commands  in sequence.
However, I didn't see any files in my CVSROOT, when I ran as both root
and an underpriviledged user.  At first all it did was output a number
of Us  followed by file names.   After that it just  output a sequence

,----[ Just an example of all of the files
| cvs server: Updating emacs/man
| cvs server: Updating emacs/msdos
| cvs server: Updating emacs/notes
| cvs server: Updating emacs/nt

        What am I doing wrong, and why don't I see any files when I ls
my CVSROOT directory?

Thanks in advance,
