.lnk files are *not* symbolic links like Unix.  NT does not have such a
concept (it supports hard links in Win2000 but nobody uses them as
there's no command line to set them).

cvs generally doesn't support symbolic links anyway as it causes
problems even on Unix - the support is commented out in Unix CVS.

You need a checkout script to just check out the files you want.  See
'keeping a checked out copy' in the CVS manual.
