If you don't want the history you can just remove the CVS directories
and import the rest. If you want history you'll have to do more work.
What you've got is a CVS working copy, not a CVS repository, if you get
a copy of the repository it'll have the ',v' files, and cvs2svn will be
able to convert into an svn repository.
