I am really sure. The exact command used to checkout my tree was:
# cvs -z3 -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvs co \
-D '5 Dec 2003' \
-r linux_2_4 linux
I am not extremely confident about my CVS skills, but the fine manual tought
me this. I even checked out kernels from June 4th 2003, without success. I am
now trying February 4th 2003.
