You can but it must be exactly the same command, issued from the same
directory.  If you change anything then it'll conflict.


D:\t>cvs co -d foo cvsroot
cvs checkout: Updating foo
U foo/checkoutlist
U foo/commitinfo
U foo/config
U foo/cvsrc
U foo/cvswrappers
U foo/editinfo
U foo/historyinfo
U foo/loginfo

D:\t>cvs co -d foo cvsroot
cvs checkout: Updating foo
cvs checkout: Updating foo/itest
cvs checkout: Updating foo/uptest
cvs checkout: Updating foo/uptest/a
cvs checkout: Updating foo/uptest/b

btw. as seen above it works fine when done this way.
