backing up of cvs repositories

hey friends,
I have configured CVS on fc3 and now I am trying to learn how to backup the cvs repositories. There are about 9 repositories on my linux server and I want to backup all the repositories to one of the directory on the server itself.
I read this url and want to know how to backup my repositories.
Developers in my company don't work after 11:00 PM as they prefer to come on weekends to finish their pending work rather than spending whole night completing their work.
I can schedule the backup of the repositories through rsync at 4:00 AM everyday I hope at this time nobody will be accessing the cvs. Now how should I backup means should I create lock files or should i stop cvs server and then take the backup.
Which is the best way to backup the repositories ? Developers are using pserver as authentication method  as my server is very restricted for ssh access.
Thanks & Regards
