cvs checkout libtiff

How do I enter this information into my browser?

Unless you can find a CVS plugin for your browser (I don't even know if one exists), you'll need a 3rd-party CVS client. I would recommend a little reading first: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concurrent_Versions_System

Then check out these cool CVS clients if you use Windows:

http://www.tortoisecvs.org/ -- integrates into shell (very cool)
http://www.wincvs.org/ -- full featured GUI (also pretty cool)

If you use any kind of 'nix, you'll probably be happy with the command-line utility (simply called 'cvs'), but you can even use the command-line on Windows through various means (for instance, Cygwin, http://www.cygwin.com/ ).
