The only (easy + difficult) way to remove a module (folder in the
repository) from the CVS server is to connect to the server as Admin
(root) and delete the folder. This is also the way to rename it. 

The other way is to dump the earlier import and start a new one. This
will lose your changes and history made on the earlier module/folder.

To retain the history, you need to rename the folder on the server
itself and then checkout the new folder and not try and update the older
one, but delete it from everyone's system and checkout the new renamed
module. The same holds for files also.
