Not exactly needed immediate after a checkout but does no harm

Nope, don't copy, leave it where it was. So better run cvs in your source dir.

You can copy things but it is not needed. All compile steps look ok. If you 
need some hande bat files, see the HowTo.

if you don't copy, you  can do
   C:\pp\cvs> cvs -z3 -dP update dir1 dir2 dir3 ...
so now and then and you have the latest sources
