Can I check out a file without specifying the module it's in?

Actually, here's a couple of more newbie questions I couldn't find a direct
answer for in FAQs etc. (though my last question did result in a pointer to
the user manual that answered most of what I needed - if that's the same
for these, please excuse my overlooking any already-stated info!)

1. Is there a way to checkout a file without knowing exactly which module
it's in? In other words, let's say I want to work on fooglitz.c, but can't
remember where it is in the module hierarchy - is there a way to say 'get
me fooglitz.c wherever it is?'. I realize that this could lead to problems
if there are (for some lame reason) multiple fooglitz.c files, but let's
forget about that possibility right now.

2. Is there a way to make the checkout non-case-specific? There have been
some cases where fooglitz.c got was named Fooglitz.c despite any naming
conventions, and I'd like to work around that if possible.

Part of these would be avoided if there was an easier way to browse the
Repository out of the box, without having to install another product like
CVSWeb - is there any support for browsing/searching the Repository in the
current version of CVS?
