along the same lines to get the modules alone
 cvs -n checkout -p CVSROOT/modules
 seems to work even though I do not have direct (not a mounted file system) 
to the cvs repo.

i.e. if you do 
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home2/cvsroot login
get password from
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home2/cvsroot -n checkout -p
you get to see the cvs modules file
