Checkout files from multiple CVS folders to a single folder

Hi all,
I'm new to CVS.

I have a CVS Server. And use the WINCVS client to access the server.

I have created a repository and started loading my files.

file 1 is in path1/current_lib_components_binaries

file 2 is in path2/binary_components

I've set up the CVSROOT modules with

twofiles -a path1/current_lib_components_binaries/file1 path2/binary_components/file2

From WINCVS I execute

cvs -d :sspi:server:/Joecvs -t checkout -d source -P -- twofiles

For the second file I get the warning
cvs server: warning: source/file2 is not (any longer) pertinent

The first file is successfully retrieved.

I've tried changing the listing of the files in the modules file to
twofiles file2 file1

that gave me
cvs server: warning: source/file1 is not (any longer) pertinent

I've found that I can export the files with
cvs -d :sspi:server:/Joecvs export -D NOW -d source -P -- twofiles

        but the files are not available for edit. So, this will work for building an executable but not for development.

What I'm trying to accomplish is to gather files from multiple ("Common" and others) folders in CVS to a single directory. Is there a better way to do this?
