That U means "Updated"--CVS tells you that this file was sent to your
local disk by the CVS server.  The file should be under the `emacs'
subdirectory of the directory where you invoked the "cvs checkout"

That's because there's nothing to update, once you've checked out the
CVS tree, and as long as no new code is checked in by some developer.

Nothing.  You should now have the CVS code checked out on your disk.

Where is your CVSROOT directory?
