It appears that you may be labouring under the assumption that svn is a potential _client_ replacement that will read a CVS repo. It doesn't do this. You can convert a repository using the tools available at: http://cvs2svn.tigris.org/ but afterwards you are using svn exclusively -- there is no ability to mix and match. After the conversion, both client and server tools will change. The primary advantage of using svn is that the _server_ uses a different protocol to track objects. Directory management, for instance, is a track-able change, as opposed to the CVS strategy of directory management through side effect.
Stuff like, can I use my present cvsup-fetched /home/ncvs with svn? I didn't
No - if you have fetched a directory using cvsup, then it is a CVS workspace, and will remain that way. If the server managing a repo is using CVS, you will use a CVS client to access it If you are managing a repo you wish to convert to svn, then the link above will help you do it. At the time of such a conversion, all currently-checked-out CVS workspaces will be orphaned.
