if "cvs co -d . -d /home/sc/test env/pilot" works on one machine then on that
 same machine try "cvs co -d . -d /home/sc/test2 env/homer", if it works then
you probably have a pserver config problem, if it does not then you probably
have some kind of access problem with the homer (does not exist or no
read/write perms), or it could be that you are attempting to check out two
modules in the same physical directory which I am pretty sure CVS does not like
(probably what the "existing repository" message was about).

I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
