Using rsync on Suse Linux

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a few questions regarding rsync on SLES 10.  I have copied a directory using rsync to another remote server rsync *.* root@server:/directory name
My questions are:
Do I always have to put in the full path of the source server starting from its root directory?
What is the easiest way to setup a cron file to schedule this copy and only the changed files now that I have a full copy?
I already provided a key so I am not prompted for the password each time
