Is that directory already controlled by CVS?

What command did you run?

Are you trying to do 'cvs co -d source module'? That doesn't mean
'create directory source\module'. It means 'create a sandbox dir called
"source" for module'.

It won't work if CVS doesn't know about that directory. 'cvs co' on an
existing sandbox effectively does a 'cvs update'
