You should be able to simply copy the repository files and directory structure to the new host. The 'server' is just the CVS runtime binary, and probably already runs fine on the new host.
The real hassle is that in each of your existing sandboxes, the ./CVS/Root file contains a reference to the original CVS server. When the server is moved to a new host, each of the CVS/Root files must be modified to point at the proper server and possibly the proper new CVS root on the server.
