If I were you, I'd back up the CVS directory, as you'll then a history of the 
config, rather than just the latest configs. My personal choice of backup tool 
is rsync, as it is network transparent and intelligent about when or when not 
to copy something, ie it'll handle the logic of when a file has changed rather 
than you having to work it out.
