Reattaching to repository - is it possible?

Hey all,

I am having a hard time finding out how to reattach my
existing eclipse project to a new repository location
that contains the same project in subversion.

Essentially, we are moving our servers to a new
location (colo facility) and its taking a week or so
to get all the vpn/hardware stuff set up. In the
meantime, I gotta work. So I have been working on some
files "offline". Now, I want to reconnect my project
to the server at the new location. I disconnected the
project from SVN (since the URL needs to be updated).
I then make a repository location to the new location
and that's fine. Everything is there. I want to simply
say "Ok, this project, with some changes in it, needs
to reconnect to this new SVN repository and do NOT
overwrite any of my changed files. I want to now
commit them".

Every time I try it keeps telling me I need to enter a
new folder name, that the folder that is in Subversion
already exists. This is pretty basic CVS capabilities,
so I am going to be shocked/stunned if subversion
and/or subclipse can't support the ability to
reconnect a project to an existing repository. If this
is the case, why? And, is it being added, because it
seems pretty crazy to me that you could not simply
reconnect your project (that was already tied to SVN)
by simply changing the repository location.
