Pretty much, it just involves knowing your auth method, the target
host, and the path.

For example, during our little coding period for robotics, we used CVS
as such:

$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ export CVSROOT=:ext:kleio.corvidae.org:/home/cvs/robot
$ cvs co somemod

As far as Mozilla is concerned, I'm not totally sure exactly what they
do, but it looks like they use the pserver method for authentication.
Also, I've found it to be a good idea to create a directory somewhere
and cd to that directory before pulling something down from CVS, but
that's just a practice I use.

$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs-mirror.mozilla.org:/cvsroot
$ cvs login
$ cvs co somemod

You'll have to look up the module names for whatever stuff you're
talking about.  Hopefully, this helps a little.
