We use a version control system called CVS. The easiest way to get to the
files is to get the files directly through CVS. The easiest way to do this
is to download a GUI client. There is a platform independent one at
http://www.jcvs.org You sound like a CVS newbie. Well so am I. I hate CVS
with a friggin passion. Its like an ancient Unix command line utility 
been mutated by radiation into a version control system.
