You need a cvs client program. I am using the cvs program from the port but I think you should also be able with the eclipse
program. Important is the CVSROOT and that you are using the SSH. In
the following command the CVSROOT is 


| $ export CVS_RSH=ssh
| $ cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvs-latest/emacs co emacs

The problem with cvs-latest is that the two file 'emacs/src/regex.h'
and 'emacs/src/regex.c' are missing. You can check out theese files
from the cvs-2003-09-16 cvs tree or you can do first a checkout of
cvs-2003-09-16 and afterwards cvs-latest. This should work, but I have
not tried it.

As a second step you should look into the file emacs/nt/INSTALL. This
file describes the following steps:

| $ cd emacs/nt
| $ ./configure.bat --with-mscv
| $ nmake bootstrap

I am not sure which CL version you are using. If you are using MSVC
7.0 (CL 13) then you should edit the file nmake.defs in emacs/nt and
remove the occurences of '-debugtype:both'.
