There's no reason at all why the other machine would be 
business/business/stuff.  What are you using for your checkout?  In fact 
the module name doesn't need to have anything to do with where it's 
checked out, although it normally does for simplicity.

I have to admit I've never seen anyone create an empty module in that 
way - although there's no reason it wouldn't work - normally you'd have 
existing sources to import (cvs really doesn't have a standard way to 
create empty modules.. my normal way is to checkout the root node and do 
a cvs add).
