Well, I managed to get things working.
Just copied the files, and reset the security settings for the directories
and files.
Also needed to make adjustment to my config file manually once, because the
lock dir has an absolute path and because it didn't exist on the server
anything failed. So I edited it once manually (directly in the repository, I
know, this was an exception) and then I could checkout the cvsroot, edit the
config and commit it as it should be done.
Just in case anyone was wondering how it went ;-)
