CVS repository migration from Windows XP to Linux box

What is the procedure/steps for migrating a project from the CVS repository on a Windows XP server to a repository on a Linux server.  It would be helpful if the versioning history and log information can be retained during the migration.

I know one of the options we have is to do an CVS export from the Windows XP box and then do a CVS import of the contents to the Linux box. But in this method the versioning information is lost.

The CVS versions is the same on both the boxes.

1 Solution
Simply move the entire $CVSROOT from Windows to the Linux server.
