CVS instructions within Windows FAQ

A colleague of mine recently wanted to install CVS version of Emacs.
After googling for "GNU emacs CVS", the second link was:


which said for install of CVS:

The following commands should checkout the current version of the source:

c:\>cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs login
c:\>cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs checkout emacs

On a Unix machine, after typing the first "login" command, and giving
an empty password, the command does not end; it has to be aborted.

Do these instructions need updating?  I note on subversions the 
command given is:

cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co emacs

Is that appropriate for the windows platform too?  Listing a command
that works on both windows and unix would be better for the faq.
