(I presume you are talking about the history file, and not the full 
revision history of each file in the repository).
Did you do as people here advised?
After initialising the repository, you have to update the CVSROOT 
config files. This includes the modules and history files. So it 
appears you forgot to edit/copy these files.

I don't understand this - files go to the Attic when deleted, so why 
do you need a deleted file?
(This is the CVS behavior; CVSNT doesn't use the Attic folder 
anymore, but shoud handle that without problem).
