Nothing. The problem is in your checkout step - you're trying to check the
files out into a pre-existing directory, which has a directory name that
conflicts with the one CVS is trying to check out.

Try checking it out into a completely empty directory. Remove the '-d'
option, for example, or create an empty directory and cd to that directory
before issuing the checkout command.
