I had a hand in writing the eBook "All About CVS" so I'd recommend that one 
;)  Essential CVS which you already have though has been the one book that 
most CVS Admins have read for many years though.

I thought the ORielly book covered that ?  A simple copy or rsync of the 
repository will do - preferably shut down connections to port 2401 during 
the copy, but even that's optional...

This is a rather vague question - if you are looking for access control of 
sandboxes you probably need the CVSAcls script or to migrate to CVSNT 
(unix/linux/windows, GPL/Free just like CVS but with additional features), 
if you are wanting to secure the repository itself then that's easy: no user 
should have be able to login to the box except admins (just disable 
interactive logins for all normal users).

Again the O'Rielly book or google - generally as a rule though you should 
look at what business objective your organisation has for implementing SCM, 
then find a SCM process that supports that objective then implement that 
process using a set of tools that have the necessary features - copying 
someone elses process will rarely achieve that result.
