First of all, you can already check out part_one by itself:
    cvs checkout part_one

If you really want a single file from part_one, figure out what
part_one is.  There should be a line in the modules file that says
something like

    part_one    path/to/part_one

You can then do
    cvs checkout path/to/part_one/subdir/myfile

and you will get myfile, 4 directories deep.

Won't work.  Commit myfile from your deep sandbox and wipe out the
sandbox.  Then do a full checkout of whole_thing.  But if you're going
to check out whole_thing eventually, why not do it up front and keep
it checked out?
