Retrieving dead files from the Attic

We're running the cvs Repo on a linux box with no shell access to users who're on the WinXP client side, except myself as the Admin.

A user accidentally committed files to the Attic and we need to retrieve them. I've committed files to the attic many times before but we never had the need to retrieve. I myself access the Repo via WinXP Dos prompt, as a client too to do my work and never login to shell except to create new users or do maintenance, etc.

Can I retrieve the dead files from winxp client side by being in my working copy's specific folder where the file was deleted, like so:

cvs –Q update -p -r (revision) foo.jpg > foo.jpg

cvs add –kb foo.jpg (only if binary)

cvs ci -m “Resurrecting the Dead!” foo.jpg

If this has to be done on the unix side, do I have create a working copy in my $home$ folder? I need specifics please. Your help is very much appreciated. Thank you.
