Ah, I see.  To use PCL-CVS successfully you first need to create a
working directory outside of Emacs (or from M-x shell RET or M-x
eshell RET if you like).  Just follow the instructions on the Tramp

After this, M-x cvs-update RET will fetch diffs between what you have
on disk and what's on the server.  You can also do M-x cvs-status RET
instead of M-x cvs-update RET -- then you get a PCL-CVS buffer
showing the current state of affairs.

In any case, from the PCL-CVS buffer you can access all the nifty
functions such as getting diffs (to understand what changed between
version 1.42 and 2.3 of a certain file, say) or checking in changes.
