When I tried that, all of the history was lost, as well as some of the 
required info in the modules folder.

The "missing" files (when we try to compile) are actually files in the Attic 
folders.  When we checkout the files, we do not get the files in the Attic 
folders.  How can I get them as part of a checkout?

Thx for everyone's help so far.
