Thanks .. 
well one more query :

>From the command line  on the following syntax :
cvs checkout -N -d c:\temp ModuleName

I get the error CVS/Entries not found... Fine I understand but want to make
sure that are the switches / option I am using are appropriate ? Its not
creating the CVS folder (entries / root / ...etc files) so it doesnt gets
the code.

My requirement from the  syntax that I  should get / checkout  the code on a
specific path (say c:\temp). 

Any suggestions pls....

That implies that "bname" is a revision tag rather than a branch tag in
at least one file in the directory.  For safety's sake, CVS considers a
tag that occurs both as a branch tag and as a revision tag to be a
revision tag.  You can use "cvs status -v" to find the culprits.  If the
tagged revision is the correct root for the branch, you can convert the
revision tag to a branch tag with "cvs tag -Fb".  Once the tags are
corrected, you'll need to re-update the working directory to the branch
so that CVS knows it's now a branch tag ("cvs up -rbname").
