loginfo for windows2000 server

The CVS manual speaketh thusly:

"C.7.2 Keeping a checked out copy

"It is often useful to maintain a directory tree which contains files
which correspond to the latest version in the repository. For example,
other developers
might want to refer to the latest sources without having to check them
out, or you might be maintaining a web site with CVS and want every
checkin to
cause the files used by the web server to be updated. 

"The way to do this is by having loginfo invoke cvs update. Doing so 
the naive way will cause a problem with locks, so the cvs update must 
run in
the background. Here is an example for unix (this should all be on one

^cyclic-pages           (date; cat; (sleep 2; cd /u/www/local-docs;
 cvs -q update -d) &) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/updatelog 2>&1

"This will cause checkins to repository directories starting with
cyclic-pages to update the checked out tree in `/u/www/local-docs'."

I am trying to do this for a windows2000 CVS server and am unable to 
get it working. The help I have been getting so far is rather general 
and I searched all the manuals for loginfo for cvsNT. 

Please can anyone give me an example or something for windows2000?

Thanks Kerstin
