Moving Repositories to New Server

Hi All,
I've been tasked with moving our install of all subversion repositories
to a new server. As a I'm pretty new to the whole SVN thing I'd like to
check a few things out with some input from more experienced users
before I break everything and get the sack! ;)
After having done some reading it seems like a very simple process.
We're using VisualSVN server http://www.visualsvn.com/server/.
Since the repositories themselves are self contained it seems that the
actual move process is little more than a normal copy process from the
existing repository directory on one server to the new repository
directory on the new server. Is this correct? I'm under the impression
that all the meta data/history is also maintained by doing it this way
(even retaining the same UUID).
My question is really about linking developers local working copies to
the new repository location on the new server. How do you tell the
local working copy to now link to the new svn server as opposed to
continuing linked to the old svn server repository?
From looking through the Tortoise help file it seems that Relocate might
be what I'm looking for.
Any pointers/info on this would be really appreciated.
