cvs/rcs question

I have code maintained in both rcs and cvs on two
different unix boxes at the moment.

I want to bring both of these to a new machine
which Ive setup.

My question is:
1) Is it possible to bring across the entire
rcs and cvs repositories, so as to maintain all
history information. If so, whats the best way
to do this ?

2) Ideally I would like to maintain all my code
in cvs. Is it possible to take the code in RCS
and add it to a new cvs repsoitory again in such
a way as to maintain all history information on
the files. If so, how do you do this ?

As RCS and CVS are inter-related I expect all
of this is possible - just looking for opinions
and recommendations...

'cause CVS is based on RCS you may simply move/copy the repository files to the CVS directory and check it out. This, or cause, maintains all history information.

AFAIK, it's not wise to use RCS on a CVS maintained repository.
