If your using CVS, then unfortunately, its not that simple. In fact, this is
one of the issues supporters of version control systems like subversion like to
cite as the reason subversion is better than CVS. 

I have done this (a while ago) and I remember it was a fiddely pain in the bum,
plus I lost some change history information in the process. However, it was so
long ago, I can't rmember anymore. I'm sure if you google for it, you will find
the solution.
