How did you put them there? If it's your first usage of cvs then the 
repository should still be empty. After the initial installation you 
should never access the repository directory on the server - that is, 
all your work is done thru the CVS commands and/or TortoiseCVS from 
the client machine.

For the first time, that should be "Make New Module". The "Add" 
option should not appear at all - that means you *already* have a 
checked out module, that is, a working copy. how did you get it? 
Don't use "CVS" as a directory name; they are used internally by the 
cvs system and it can get confused.
