A good starting point is the manual:

It didn't work, I don't see those files. You shouldn't use import for
that. As you learn from the manual:

  Use import to incorporate an entire source distribution from an outside
  source (e.g., a source vendor) into your source repository directory.
  You can use this command both for initial creation of a repository, and
  for wholesale updates to the module from the outside source. See section
  13. Tracking third-party sources, for a discussion on this subject.
In your case, you only have a copy of the repository (which you check
out, like in a library) so import is definitely not the command to use.
To put your files in you should first make sure you've got an up-to-date
copy, by `cvs update -d' in the boost-sandbox root directory, then

cvs add [list all the files here on the same command line]
cvs commit [list those files again on the same command line]

You then enter a short description of the files, and it's in the
repository. To test if it worked, just check out a new copy of the
sandbox in /tmp or any other directory, they should be there. (Then you
can immediately scrap your /tmp copy.)
