Thanks. I used xcopy to create an empty tree structure but, since there were 
no files, CVS didn't import anything! I don't want to import my actual 
development tree because there are lots of files that should not be placed 
in source control. It appears CVS wants me to go through a time-consuming 
file copying operation.

This link is for cvs 1.11.7 and some others,  but the command should be
the same. You may want to find a doc that corresponds to your version

When you do a cvs import of a project, all files at the same level and
below in the directory tree will be imported. If there are files in
there you would like to check-in later, remove/move them somewhere else
before doing the import.

Also, beware of binary files if you have any. You may want to 'cvs add'
them later as they require special options. Not sure if cvs import
determines that prior to importing and acts accordingly.
