still didn't work.
thus, I gave up and just downloaded each file individually via browser.
there should be a cvs1-11 folder on your C drive if you installed it.
Win cvs is not logging to server right.You can get it to work but its better to use command line.
Open Dos (command line) @ c prompt
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/phpbb co phpBB2
you should now have a folder in cvs1-11 folder called phpBB2 :)
