downloading cvs files

I have installed cvs and I went through the documentation, more or less. 
However: how can I get the adresses where to download files with the help of 
cvs ?
Just an example: David Skoll's hint for roaring penguins "Kernel Mode PPPOE" 
tells me to get the PPP software from the CVS repository at and 
gives the instruction 
cvs -d:pserver:cvs at login
OK. That works fine.
How can I proceed, as an exmple, if I would like to download mozilla-1.0.1 ? 
The hint on beyond linux from scratch gives only http and ftp locations. But 
my question is a general one.
Thanks in advance,
