I thought Emacs would open a mini-buffer to show you that warning message, but
you guys know Emacs better than I do.

The new repository is accessed with exactly the same methods as the old
one. All you have to do is change /cvs (or /home/cvs) to /cvsroot in every
Root file in every CVS subdirectory.
If you worked in GNU/Linux I would tell you a one-line bash command to do that
automatically, but on proprietary systems I cannot help you.

Another thing you can do is create a fresh new copy of the repository
using address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs as the root directory
(check out module emacs).
