It means that the directory you just got rid of was not a top-level
directory in the repository but a subdirectory.  Assuming you're in a
working directory that maps to the repository directory that's the
parent of the directory you're trying to get (which it will if you
originally did a checkout of the top-level directory and then deleted
one of the subdirectories from your working directory, which I think is
the case here), just use update instead of checkout:

        cvs up -d dir_name

(Note the -d to create new directories.)  Otherwise, you have to give
the full path to the repository directory:

        cvs co module/dir_name
