copy backups

Hi all,

Just a stupid silly question :
I have set up a simple backup solution for all my important files : I
just copy them to another drive and burn a DVD-RW of these files.

I've read all the documentation about the backups (by the Ben, Brian,
and Mickael, I also got the O'Reilly version of the svn-book, it's
really cool to have the printed one!) and I know that it's unsafe if
there are commits going on during backups, but I've got my very personal
repository and the backup procedure runs when I'm not using the computer...

I'd like to know if doing just a copy (cp -Rp $SVN_REP_PATH) of the svn
repository is safe and leads to a usable backup.

thanks,

Pejvan
