OK, copy/pasting from the web-site:
Type the following into the Admin | Command Line box
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous_at_[hidden]:/cvsroot/boost login
Now you are logged in. I think this is all you have done so far?
Next you must enter the second line, which is a second request to Admin
| Command Line (don't worry, this is the same session as before)
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous_at_[hidden]:/cvsroot/boost co
modulename is the name of the folder on your PC where you want to check
out the boost repository to.
This will take some time!!
After that, you should be able to see the boost sources in a
directory-structure within WinCVS. Folders under CVS control will have
a check mark inside the icon.
To update in the future, simply right click on the highest-level folder
you want to update (usually 'boost') and select 'Update Selection' from
the menu. This will merge any changes that have been committed since
your last update.
