Newbie: Problems trying to checkout single files?

hey all,

I have just started to use CVS, and have run into a weird problem. I am
running on Win2k, with the cvs.exe ver. 1.11.1p1

What I am trying to do is do a cvs checkout on a single file, but it doesn't
seem to work.

my repository is at \\harpm\cvs_root and only dir in it is \myproj, with
file1.txt and file2.txt in that directory.

>From c:\, I can do

cvs.exe -d "\\harpm\cvs_root" checkout myproj

and things are cool. it gets all of the files, and i'm rockin with Docken.

but then if i try this,

cvs.exe -d "\\harpm\cvs_root" checkout myproj\file1.txt

the above command fails with the following error "cvs [checkout aborted]:
cannot find myproj\file1.txt: Invalid argument"

I don't understand what the problem is? Is it possible to checkout single
files, or is there some other command that would be more reliable for doing

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
