Linda,

I dont know CVS that much, but I havent had problems with it.  If you are
using WinCVS, go to the CvsAdmin menu, select "Preferences" item, then in
the "General" tab, enter anoncvs@xml.apache.org:/home/cvspublic for the CVS
ROOT.  For Authentication, select "passwd"file on the cvs server. Then you
can log on using "Login" from the CvsAdmin menu.  Now you can select
"Command Line" menu item from CvsAdmin menu, and type cvs checkout branch
(whatever the branch you are trying to get).  This worked for me.

Hope this helps.
Mahesh.
