CVS does not like it when you rename files.  This is one of it's weaknesses.
In this case I don't see why you want to do this though.  You can check out
different versions of the files from CVS, no need to explicitly start
renaming them.

Uh no, you must think I did not read the manual. In fact, I had read
the manual a few times but could not get answer from there.

>From what I understand, the manual is only good for check out the
recently checked in file. What I want is one a file is checked in, I
want to check out the file and append the filename with a revision #.
For example, if five developers check in five different copied of
abc.c at very short delay. I expect to check out abc.c file and rename
them as abc.c.1, abc.c.2, abc.c.3, abc.c.4 and abc.c.5 respectively in
a particular directory.
