In Windows Explorer (2000), try Tools -> Folder Options -> View, and
select "Do not show hidden files and folders".  I don't know what else
it considers "hidden" besides dot-files, so use at your own risk.

It's also annoying when CVS lists them all as unknown files, but I
just now figured out that you can put a file pattern (i.e. ".Z*") in
.cvsignore, so there you go.
