In my experience, losing history is rarely an option.

Seems to me the easiest way would be to:

1) Copy/ftp the CVSROOT directory from original repository to all new
repositories.  Make necessary changes to fit configuration for new

2) Tar up (be sure to preserve permissions, tar -p) and copy/ftp over
the modules into their proper locations in the new repositories.

You preserve your history, and you avoid the (in my mind, unecessary
for this case) overhead of doing anything through CVS (removes,
exports, imports).  OS operations (cp, tar, ftp) are typically quicker
than attempting to manipulate the repository via CVS - you just have to
be a little more careful.
