If you use CVSNT (free/GPL, on Linux, Windows etc) you can use:
cvs -d :pserver:server:/repo login

cvs -d :pserver:server:/repo checkout module

The "username" is substituted at run time, so the user who performs the
commit will get their name on the files.  I think this is a CVSNT
specific feature, but it may be available in more recent releases of CVS
