help for svn:external

From: Taner Diler <tanerd_at_riskturk.com>

I try to use svn:external property but I can't.
my repository tree is like that:

root
        project1
                    project1_file.txt
        project2
                    project2_file.txt

I want to link project1 to project2.
Steps that I follow is like that:

1. I checkouted root folder to c:\root_wf

2. I changed the current directory to root_wf
    cd c:\root_wf

3. I prompted this command:
     c:\root_wf> svn propset svn:external "shadow file:///c:/test_rep/root/project1" c:\root_wf\project2

4. I checked
     c:\root_wf> svn propget svn:external d:\temp\root_wf\project2
                        shadow2 file:///c:/test_rep/root/project1

5. I commited
    c:\root_wf\svn commit

6. I checked the property in repository
        D:\temp\root_wf>svn propget svn:external file:///c:/test_rep/root/project2
        shadow2 file:///c:/test_rep/root/project1
7. I checkouted project2 as c:\project2_wf
        svn checkout file:///c:/test_rep/root/project2 c:\project2_wf

but when I looked under project2_wf, I didn't see shadow folder and
shadow\project1_file.txt

is there any problem in the steps?
if you explain setting svn:external property with an example, I will be
happy.

Thank you.
