Copying a Live Subversion Repo

Hi All
      I've had my subversion repo up and running now for the last 2
months thanks to the help i got last time i asked for help so thank you
to everyone that helped me last time. I actually have been looking at
the svn copy command on the web. I need to take a copy of a subversion
repo that is currently being used in a live working server. I tried
using the command

-bash-3.00# svn copy /svn/repos/ict/ /tmp/ict

but got the error:

svn: '/tmp/ict' is not a working copy

Do you know of any way i can just take a copy of the repo. I only need a
duplicate copy of the repo it wont actually be used. I also just tried
copying the /repos/ict directory to /tmp/ict but i also got an error
about some of the files in the repo having long file names and they
wouldnt copy over.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Kind Regards
Anthony McGovern
