CVS problem?

I'm attempting to install Livejournal code on my own system here. I installed Debian and have apt-get'ed a couple packages so far (this is my first time using Debian ever).

I installed the CVS program from apt-get too. Now I'm reading through the online docs and am at http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/lj.install.install_files.html

I ran the following command
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.livejournal.org:/home/cvslj co livejournal

It seems to be getting stuck at this point in the transfer.
cvs server: Updating livejournal/var
U livejournal/var/.placeholder
Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this problem and continue with my installation? Thanks for any help!
