A couple options come to mind:
1) Check out the files you want to stay at a specific level with a
specific revision. They will be marked wiht a sticky tag and held at
that rev level until you purposfully reset it.
2) Create a branch and work on the branch. The files you don't change
will remain the same as your teammates work against the HEAD.
Which one is best depends on why you want to exclude those files.
