A hotcopy isn't what you want to do anyway.

It will probably be fine with just a copy, but if you go from 32-bit
to 64-bit there's a chance something could happen. A dump & load cycle
is a good idea anyway and valuable experience for using Subversion.

You'd have to copy registry settings to bring over the history you see
in the Repo-Browser. Not worth the hassle.

For your working copies, use Relocate to point them at the new
hostname; if the path has changed, use Switch. If both the hostname
AND path have changed, you'll have to checked out fresh WCs.
