Rebuilding server

    I'm looking at a server (machine) rebuild.  How can I preserve my
CVS tree(s)?  I don't know if it's as simple as tarring up my entire
/CVS directory, then untarring it when I'm done
(formatting/reinstalling/blah/blah), or what else is involved.  I must
maintain all of the version histories on everything, branches and all.
I know I can't just checkout everything, then re-import after the
rebuild because that'll skew the file versioning.  So, what's the proper
way of doing this?
