making a new repository with history from an existing one

I've got a project partially under CVS control. We wanted to start small and
get everyone used to using CVS, so we imported only one subdir of our project
and had everyone learn CVS by playing with that. We were figuring it would take
a bit to get used to learning CVS -- we were expecting errors, and were
prepared to toss history on that subdir when we wanted to import the whole
project "for real". However, everyone picked it up very quickly, and we had no
errors at all. Now we want to import the entire project, but we don't want to
lose that nice history on the one currently controlled subdir.

Let's call my project "project", with maybe ten subdirs "project/a",
"project/b", "projetc/c", etc. Right now, we have only "project/a" under CVS,
as a module called "a". CVS currently knows nothing about the "project" parent
dir, or any of the other subdirs.

The desired goal is to control all of "project", while maintaining the existing
history on "a", which would become "project/a".

Any hints on the best way to accomplish this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks,
