Well, one way to do it is:

        cvs co -d c:/test -l moduleName
        cd c:/test
        cvs co dir1 dir2

Another is:

        cvs co -d c:/test -l moduleName
        cvs co -d c:/test/dir1 moduleName/dir1
        cvs co -d c:/test/dir2 moduleName/dir2

(Note that backslashes only mostly work with CVS -- unless you enjoy
unpleasant surprises, I suggest you get used to using forward slashes
in CVS commands instead.)
