The eclipse IDE lets users select individual files. You really have to
stay on top of updates, though, because it implements the CVS protocol
internally in order to accomplish this, and minor updates have been known to
break it.

My favorite win32 client (and the only one I actively support for our
users) is TortoiseCVS.

It's based on cvsnt and integrates nicely with the shell. It handles all
the normal developer tasks quite nicely. For administrative tasks, you
may still want the command line tools.
