If the files are in a different module, but  same repository you can create
aliases to get what you want, with something like:

checkoutForProject1 -a project1 commonHeaderDir commonCPPDir
checkoutForProject2 -a project2 commonHeaderDir commonCPPDir

If the common files are in a different repository from the project, this won't
work. You'll need to create a simple script to do the checkout that does
something like:

cvs -d /cvsrootCommon checkout commonHeaderDir commonCPPDir
cvs -d /cvsrootProjects checkout project1

I don't know what you mean by "local".

This is done automatically on commit: the workspace files called CVS/Root take
care of that: see
