git clone of a CVS repository

How to make a clone of a CVS repository using git?  I have access to a CVS remote repository and I want to make a local copy of it in git.  I don't want to ever make any updates to the CVS, just want to be able to have a local copy in git.  I'm a little nervous because I don't know CVS very well, and I don't want to break anything.

I have used cvs, svn and git.
This was one of relaible guides, I have found but not tried this for myself.

However, in the mean time try looking into the cvs quickstart if this comforts a bit,
