1. Make sure no-one accesses your repository for the whole time!
2. Make a tarball of your cvsroot: tar czf <tarname> <cvsrepodirectory>
3. Re-allow accesses to your repository
4. Put the tarball on tape.

If the repository is quite large, you might want to try to store just a
diff over a previous one on a daily basis, and store the whole
repository only once a week or so. I have not tried that, but IMHO, this
should work.
