surprisingly, command line like :
cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/freedos login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/freedos co
modulename !!

But ... me being that Windows user not liking command line, set up *Win*
CVS. For some reason, I'm still unable to get Win CVS to checkout :-((

- At present, Login worked. Thanks !
- the other question remains 

So my questions for **Win CVS** set up are

Do I include the "module name" portion while setting the 
"browse to" directory using the binocular button ?

If cd /home/abc/mycvs_code is the general directory where I have 
many sub directories, like  /freedos, /freesomethingelse etc. etc., 
which one do I "browse to" - to

**just** cd /home/abc/mycvs_code

- and 

What is the module name & path on server when I click on Remote ->
checkout module in Win CVS

Many thanks
