The following CVS checkout command will retrieve an initial copy of the code.
# cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/data/cvs checkout LVM
This will create a new directory LVM in your current directory containing the latest, up-to-the-hour LVM code.
CVS commands work from anywhere inside the source tree, and recurse downwards. So if you happen to issue an update from inside the `tools' subdirectory it will work fine, but only update the tools directory and it's subdirectories. In the following command examples it is assumed that you are at the top of the source tree.
