Setting up CVS question...

Hi guys,

I'm setting up a CVS repository for the first time and have so done it with no probs.



No wait... There's more.

The code we're version controlling is additional components to a third party software lump (about 200MB of source and 1000s of files), which I really don't need/want to version control. Is there anyway of just version controlling my bit and then checking it out into the source tree? I'm thinking that when I commit the changes, it would suck up all of the other stuff - which would be a real pain. My CVS book didn't mention this stuff, but it can easily be done in VSS (which we're migrating from). I guess as this is my first tme using cvs - I'm a little unsure of how it all works.

Any thoughts, reassurances would be very welcome
