CVS Vitrual Project

We're running CVS on a Redhat linux server and our users all use Windows machines either using CVS command line or WinCVS or TortoiseCVS.  I'm not clear on the CVS manual about this.  Is it possible to create or have a project in CVS that consists of only files(NO folders or subfolders) from other existing projects?



                File1 (a symlink to $cvsroot/projectXYZ/file1)

                File2 (a symlink to $cvsroot/projectFooBar/folder/subfolder/xfile)




                File N (a symlink to $cvsroot/project123/folder/subfolder/file123)


And users can check out this new project and once they modify the files in it, the updates would actually occur to the existing files in other projects where they point to?


Should such a project be created directly on the server with symlinks pointing to the actual versioned files with correct permissions configured. Or should it be configured on the client machine and imported to CVS as a project or module?  Could someone please give me detailed instructions or point me to a link.
