changing module names, preserving history

I've inhereted a cvs repository with a whole bunch of modules from a
previous IT director who, apparently, had never heard of naming
conventions.  I'd like to rename the modules, but I'm afraid of losing
the history associated with them.

I've been told that I can simply SSH in, change to root,  and change
the names of the module direcotries and all history will be preserved.

So, let's say:


and there is a module in their named "badly_named_module."  It would
be /home/cvs/cvsroot/badly_named_module.  If I changed the name of the
directory to /home/cvs/cvsroot/perfectly_named_module, would all of
the files contained therein keep their history?

Thanks in advance,
