        for f in `find . -type f -print | grep 'CVS/Root$'`; do
                echo newserver:/newroot >$f

That's safer than
        find . -type f -name Root -print | ...
because it checks that the parent directory is named "CVS".

Of course, if your CVS/Repository files have absolute pathnames,
those need to be munged too.  People have posted Perl scripts to
do that, or you could use something like:
        find . -type f -print | grep 'CVS/Repository$' |
                xargs perl -i.bak -p -e 's,^/oldroot/,/newroot/,'

All of the above are UNTESTED, so use with caution.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
