This is what I have done so far:

export CVS_RSH=ssh
ssh -l pmenso57
export CVSROOT=:ext:pmenso57_at_[hidden]:/cvsroot/boost
cvs checkout boost

At this point, everything seems to be working. All the regular files got put

C:\cygwin\home\Paul Mensonides\boost

That directory does have the directories that you are talking about in it.
(boost/ libs more/ etc.) But if I do this...

cvs update -rmpl-development boost/mpl

...nothing happens. There are still no mpl files in the directory structure.

!!! Oh, okay I follow now. I need to do this:

cvs update -rmpl-development boost/boost/mpl

> OK. Have you looked at

I looked at it briefly, but I'd rather just go buy the book--which I already
did--than read it off my screen or print it out.

Do you mean pig-slow? I had to chase a few of my sister's FFA pigs around the
neighborhood once. They were pretty small pigs, but they were fast hell. It
took my entire family and I about six hours to finally catch them.
