CVS and Binaries

I know that CVS is not the best place to store binaries.  However, I am trying to find a good solution for doing so.  I am hoping someone can help me in this decision.
I want to do revision control on files such as Visio diagrams and Access applications.  These files are "binary" format.  I am currently a user of CVS for my text based source, and I am quite happy with it.  I have looked at Visual Source Safe, and it seems like a good tool for storing files of this kind.  However, I don't like the fact that I have to have two sepaprate repositories: one for text base source and one for binaries.  Our CVS repository is also running under Linux, where VSS will not run.  I'd like to keep my repositories on the same physical box.
Does anyone run more than one RCS to handle this binary file issue?  If so, what do you use, and how is it set up in your organization?    Should I use CVS to store Visio diagrams and Access apps, or should I try a different product?  Any feedback is appreciated.
