That's at least part of the problem, probably.  Have you read the

Did you create a directory on the server in an existing repository?  If
not, that's completely wrong.  Were the "some files" you dumped into it
RCS files?  If not, that's completely wrong.

That's not necessary (you can checkout either a directory or a module),
but it can be useful.

If you're trying to check out an empty module, you must not use the -P
flag to checkout since that will delete the empty directory.  Since
you're using WinCVS, you need to go to the Globals tab in the checkout
window and uncheck "Prune empty directories".
