WinCVS is just a front end; I think you mean CVSNT 2.0.51d
I don't think this may be possible; at least I don't know any tool 
for converting backwards from CVSNT to CVS. The bulk RCS format is 
the same, but some info is stored differently (expand mode by 
example, it's versioned on CVSNT but a static property on CVS).

CVSNT -despite its name- runs on Linux too, so you could stay with it 
even after migrating the OS.

If you keep using CVSNT and manage to maintain the same host name and 
the same authentication scheme, they could even not notice the change...
