That looks like you've got the remote repository mounted on a local
directory using NFS or Samba or some other network file system.  If so,
DON'T DO THAT, it's a recipe for disaster.  Just access it using

        cvs -q -d:pserver:address@hidden:/export/home/repository checkout module

And don't use backslashes in CVS commands -- use forward slashes.  And
don't run as root.  And you might want to set $CVSROOT so you don't have
to keep typing that long -d option all the time.
