So you want to use SVN? Fine, it's easy to move a project from one to the other.
Go to a checked out copy of your cvs project and run
cvs admin -kb filename on any binary files.
Commit to CVS.
Assuming that you've got a simple CVS project with no branches that you want to keep, do this:
./cvs2svn-1.5.1/cvs2svn --trunk-only -s project-name /path/to/cvs_repository/project-name mv project-name /path/to/svn_repository/
