This means you checked out a tag that is not a branch; something like

cvs checkout -r foo MyModule

You need to either checkout the main trunk:

cvs checkout MyModule

or create a branch tag, and check that out:

cvs tag -r foo -b branch_foo
cvs checkout -r branch_foo

Hmm, with WinCVS you have to put those command line args in the dialog
boxes somewhere; hope you can figure that out.
