Yep - I guess the easy way is to 
cd Myproject
mkdir Documentation
mkdir Code
cvs add Documentation Code
cvs commit Documentation Code
pushd $CVSROOT/Myproject
find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*,v" -exec cp {} Code \;
cd Code
cvs update -A 

Now you should have an exact copy of your files in Code.
Now have fun by deleting each code files in Myproject
If you have .c/.h files you can do something like

find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*.c" > TMPFILE
find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*.h" >> TMPFILE
rm -f `cat TMPFILE | xargs`
cvs delete `cat TMPFILE | xargs`

Then tell the others to do "cvs update -A -d"

Have fun
