Off the top of my head... You have a CVS working copy that you tried to
copy over a SVN working copy. So it sounds like you want to merge them
The order of the merge I'm not sure of, but I am going to assume you
want to put CVS files into a SVN working copy. Make adjustments as

Import the CVS sandbox, minus the CVS dirs and other accounting
information into a branch directory.

Merge the svn working copy with the newly imported CVS branch.
Fix conflicts and enjoy.
