You can't do that, because Linux and Windows don't agree on the
representation of text files.  This affects the treatment of text
documents on update and commit, and also the representation of the CVS/
administrative files.

So even if you solve the location non-transparency problem by using
a CVSROOT that works everywhere, you still have this problem.

You can simply maintain two separate sandboxes.  To propagate changes
from one to the other, commit in one, and update in the other.
