warrning. this is the situation when it occurs (HTMLGenerator is one o my
modules that i put in cvs):

cvs login                       # i use pserver through inetd
cvs co HTMLGenerator            # everything is ok, i also checked that i
                                # can commit my changes

I assume that you don't have a HTMLGenerator file structure at this point, and that you use "cvs co" to get a pristine sandbox.

cvs co HTMLGenerator            # i checkout repository once again, and i
                                # get:
    cvs checkout: move away HTMLGenerator/images/rmv_row_f2.gif; it is in
the way

In that case would I suggest that you try a "cvs update" instead of the second "cvs co", and keep using "update" for your further updates of your sandbox.

Checkout is generally only used to create a CVS sandbox the first time and then never used again, which might explain why cvs is not pleased with all the files that are already there.
