You can log directly on to the server and remove the folders. If you
want to save them for posterity, we once did a similar thing and just
created an "obsolete" module and moved it there. Create the new module
as normal then you can simply move the folders into it on the server.
The folders are all self-contained in CVS so moving them around /
deleting them will do what you want and will not corrupt the
repository. Of course, always back up your repository first in case
you make a mistake and need to restore.
