1. Install CVSNT on a PC in your control
2. Create a repository for your projects
3. Traverse your local copy dir tree and delete all CVS subdirs
4. CVS import the old project sources to your new CVS server
5. Check out a project copy using your favourite protocol (sspi)
6. Continue developing.

Import is used to get external sources into CVS version control and it
seems appropriate to use that here....
