Are you sure you're able to establish connection to your CVS server? Usually "Fetching children of HEAD" errors in my environment were connected to being not actually able to connect to repository (pserver down?, proxy configuration?)

Go to:

Window->Open Perspective->CVS Repository Exploring

You should add your repository in the window CVS Repositories by clicking "Add CVS Repository" button..
If everything goes ok you should be able to unfold your repository tree in this window...
