 OK, I solved it.
 I created manually directory CVS with files: Root, Entries,
Entries.Static and Repository, and now I can download only files I want.

 The invocation: "cvs -d <server> co SOURCES/<package>" did not work
- that is why I had to create CVS dir manually.

 In case there is an easier way I would appreciate any comments and
suggestions for the sake of a general knowledge about CVS.
 Sorry, if the problem was the trivial one.
