 Do the update from within the target directories.

 These should have a CVS directory which will have a Root and 
Repository file directing CVS to the
correct place.

IE after a checkout of uClinux-2.4.x 
cd uClinux-2.4.x

[cvs login if required ]

cvs update -dP

The developers work really hard to minimise bugs 
but the latest may not always be the greatest.

Once you get what you need tar it up and keep a copy.
Always using the latest may pull in some unwanted "features" from "work
in progres".
