When I try this on Windows, I get:

c:\opt>git clone
fatal: Could not switch to ''

c:\opt>git clone git://
Initialized empty Git repository in c:/opt/boost_cookbook/.git/
remote: Counting objects: 161, done.
c:\opt>cd boost_cookbook

c:\opt\boost_cookbook>git checkout -b my_docs_branch boost_make_docs
fatal: git checkout: updating paths is incompatible with switching
branches. Did you intend to checkout 'boost_make_docs' which can not be
resolved as commit?

This is my first attempt to use git, so I have no idea what this means.
Did that branch disappear or something?
