1. Don't remove directories (folders, subfolders) from your working

2. After you removed all the regular files you need to remove, issue

   $ cvs remove

   from top-level directory of the working tree.

3. Commit changes as usual.

4. Empty directories will disappear automatically after you update your
   working tree using -P switch in cvs update:

   $ cvs update -P

   You can also add -P switch to your .cvsrc file so that you don't need
   to specify it on the command-line.
