You should do the cvs login command separately:

$ cvs -d [blablabla] login

(press return when a password is prompted)

Then you checkout the sources:

$ cvs -d [blablabla] co [whatever]

If you DON'T logout (which is done by using 'cvs logout'), the login info is
stored in your $HOME/.cvspass file and is used automaticly when you do 'cvs
update' or 'cvs checkout' in the future on a [blablabla] for which you have
the password stored.

The SSH-way is only how developers with CVS write access avoid password
