I think you should find a different set of instructions. Instead of
using "mkdir /home/myproject/cvs/myproject", you need to use the CVS
command "import" to tell CVS which files you want it to keep track of.
For example, once you have init'ed the repository, you should go to your
source root directory:
cvs import myproject username start
The import command tells CVS to create the project "myproject" in the
repository, with all of the source files and directories under the
current directory. Once CVS has imported all of the source files, you
should be able to use checkout with no problems.
