I run a mix of Windows and Linux, so I am used to the command line client.
These steps worked for me just now in Windows 2000:

Download this file, which is the latest CVS command line client for Win32:
Unzip it, and move CVS.EXE info a directory in your $PATH.

md \some_directory_for_tn5250_cvs
cd \some_directory_for_tn5250_cvs
set CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.tn5250.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/tn5250
cvs login
        (Press enter when asked for a password)
cvs checkout -r b0-16 tn5250

The '-r b0-16' tells CVS to check out a branch besides the 'head' branch.

The above steps downloaded Scott's Win32 source correctly, but I have not
had time to try to compile it yet.

Hope this helps,
Bruce Gray
