Which tutorial are you following? The CVS repository no longer exists, the sources were moved to a GIT repository. Have a look at the wiki:
http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php/Bu ... Flightgear

cheers,

Thanks ThorstenB.

Should I be using this link instead of the CVS? ::

http://www.gitorious.org/fg

I was only reading this tutorial: http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php/Building_FlightGear_-_Windows

Yes, http://www.gitorious.org/fg is the new source. Indeed, the Windows version of the tutorial still refers to the obsolete location, while the Linux tutorial already contains the updated description on how to obtain the sources using GIT (I wonder how that happened... :) ).
So forget about the "cvs" part on how to obtain the sources. See the matching description on how to obtain the sources here:
http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php/Bu ... ng_SimGear
... but of course follow the compile instructions from the Windows version.
Wiki needs an update here.

cheers,
Thorsten
