Changing CVSROOT in CVS/Root of working directory

I am facing a problem.
Actually, right now our DNS is down so for running
client server cvs,I am adding IP address of the
clients as entries in the /etc/hosts file of the
machine where cvs server is running.But we all have
previously checked out working directories;the old
CVSROOT is no longer valid;instead of the server name
we are giving server ip address and updated using 
cvs -d $CVSROOT update
Now in all CVS/Root directories, the new root has
replaced the old one so we no longer have to use -d
each time.But in one machine, this is not
happening.CVS is always reading old CVSROOT and is
giving error 'there is no machine by that name'
I changed  CVSROOT in the autoexec file, rebooted that
machine and did update with -d but in CVS/Root file,
the old CVSROOT remains.How do I change this?The
client is win 98 machine and cvs client is command prompt.
