I have files that went into the Attic.  How do I restore them back?
I've moved the files out of the Attic folder but when I checkout the
folder, the cvs GUI doesn't show any files under the folder.  Viewing
the files revealed that they're in DEAD State.

Someone has 'cvs remove'd the files. Just restore them with 'cvs add'.

cvs log <file>
Find til newest non-dead version
cvs update -r <last-version> <file>
mv <file> foo
cvs update -A <file>
mv foo <file>
cvs add <file>
cvs commit -m "bring out your dead, bring out your dead" <file>
