Remember that any already checked out files on the client will still
refer to the old server. To change this you have to delete the project
files and check out clean from the new server.
Alternatively you can edit all CVS\Root files found below your top
project file folder and change the server name in these files.
If you had used WinCvs instead of WSAD then you could have used the
macro ChangeCVSROOT of course.
