Hello guys I am a CVS newb and I've been selected to admin a CVS box.  I'm
working on reinstalling the box and I was wondering what the easiest way of
backing up the repository on one machine and restoring to another is.  Any
help would be appreciated!  Thanks

You could try to set up rsync between your boxes; that's what I have on my site. Cron runs the sync once an hour, and if anything bad was to come to the main server I can always switch IP on the backup one and that would give the developers a minimal downtime.

I think I have read about similar setups, and also ones using something called CVSup of which I know nothing.
