Yes - CVSNT (is free/GPL and runs on Linux).

Use "cvs co -kD"

If you switch the server to CVSNT (yes the server runs on Linux too),
then you can use the shadow config file to do this.  "The CVSROOT/shadow
file is used by the checkout plugin to specify directories that will be
automatically updated on commit or tag."
