I would;

- stop access to the repository (stop inetd if no local connections)
- tar and ftp to new machine
- ensure you have the right 
        /etc/profile (CVSROOT entry)

..essentially you are just moving a directory across to the new machine, the
rest is just to configure remote access. 

Check which authentication method was previously used, if it was
/CVSROOT/passwd you only need to ensure the cvs account is the same on the
new machine. For other access methods best check the manual.

Hope this helps......

Hello guys I am a CVS newb and I've been selected to admin a CVS box.  I'm
working on reinstalling the box and I was wondering what the easiest way of
backing up the repository on one machine and restoring to another is.  Any
help would be appreciated!  Thanks
