Yes, using the hotcopy script is the best solution. There's a whole
chapter in the svn book dealing with how to backup the repository:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.reposadmin.maint.html#svn.reposadmin.maint.backup

With svn 1.5 on the server, you could also use a write-through proxy:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html#svn.serverconfig.httpd.extra.writethruproxy
that way, you will have a live backup on a second server.
