sounds good, but can I add one more question..
How about from SCCS to RCS to CVS...... does anyone know
if the History will travel the whole way?  I'll find out soon enough
but the customer was asking

You don't state which environment this will happen in.  But I
take it your server / workstation will be the SunOS machine you
work at.  So what you need to know is "man 1 cp tar cpio pax". :)

"cvs init" and populating the initialized repo with the existing
,v files will give you a CVS repo with all the history summed up
so far.

     If you don't understand or are scared by any of the above
             ask your parents or an adult to help you.
