I'm not using CCK, but the nodereview module does something similar 
for "normal" nodes.  A nodereview node is not available via node/add, but is 
available to be created/edited via a tab on other nodes, and is dependent 
upon it.  Check how it's doing that, and see if that may help.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
