First fix Eclipse so it does not clobber the line endings as 
they are most likly to be unix and you are most likly to edit on 

Next checkout a project from CVS.

Setup your host, path, user, etc fields like so: cvs 
-d:extssh:User@Host:Repository Path

Browse or type your module to checkout from cvs.

Check it out to a new project workspace.

Select your tags and/or dates. HEAD is the most recent
