My system uses links to the CVS repository, and I have never had a problem
with the links.

The repository resides on a LINUX computer and is accessed via pserver
from both LINUX and MS computers.  This is a RAID box that also has
my home directory on it.  At the moment the repository is in my home directory
for ease of maintainablity.  There is a soft link at  /usr/local/cvs that 
points to my directory.  I have already tested moving it and just
changing the soft link.  On my system this all seems to work great.
