I will assume that by 'linked' you mean that one of the repositories has
a symbolic link to the directory in the other repository...

You will NOT be able to use LockDir with either of the repositories
involved. You will also need to take care that the commit criteria of
your CVSROOT *info scripts are consistent across both repositories...

You will also want to have a consistent understanding of how your users
map across both repositories. In fact, you will probably end up with
a great deal of CVSROOT being duplicated between the two to get this
to work. So, you need to ask yourself why you even bother to have two
separate repositories on the machine...

That said, I have not tried the setup you suggest. It might work, but it
is probably not the best idea I have seen mentioned.
