Thanks for your help, Carlos. I'll check out again - this time with the 
necessary modules only. However, this problem is there for the last one 
month or so - Do you know the e-mail of the CVS admin so that I can bug him?

I'd rather wish not enter the necessary modules 'by hand'. Is there a 
list of modules for developer-libs, desktop, fifth-toe, office and 
extras? Or an easy -one-command- way to checkout these modules?
