The following works for me:

  /tmp> cvs -d :pserver:guest at os.inf.tu-dresden.de:/home/remote-cvs co -l l4
  cvs checkout: Updating l4
  U l4/Makefile
  /tmp> cvs -d :pserver:guest at os.inf.tu-dresden.de:/home/remote-cvs ls l4/pkg|grep l4vfs
  /tmp> cvs -d :pserver:guest at os.inf.tu-dresden.de:/home/remote-cvs co -l l4/pkg/l4vfs  
  cvs checkout: Updating l4/pkg/l4vfs
  U l4/pkg/l4vfs/MAINTAINER
  U l4/pkg/l4vfs/Makefile
  U l4/pkg/l4vfs/README
  U l4/pkg/l4vfs/TODO

Maybe this is confusing, but most of our "packages" are not available as
CVS modules. So "cvs co l4vfs" does not work. You have to use "cvs co
l4/pkg/l4vfs" or simply "cd l4/pkg; cvs up -d l4vfs".
