First of all, CVS may not be the best tool if all you are storing is a
bunch of binaries. That said...

What hasn't worked? Did you get an error message? If so, please post it.
Are you sure the other files "worked"? I will assume you mean the -kb
worked. Do a 'cvs status' on each of the file classes (*.doc, *.jar,
*.gif etc) to be sure you have the -kb option enabled. Are you actually
doing an import? Why not do an add? Please be more specific...
