It sounds like your doing the svn cp and then an svn ci. That's not 
quite right. You can do it that way, but I wouldn't recommend it.

A more correct approach is this:
svn cp svn+ssh://svn.lfs.org/livecd/branches/6.1.1-newmake 
svn+ssh://svn.lfs.org/livecd/tags/6.1.1-2 -m "Tagged 6.1.1-2"

That will give you the Copied tags/6.1.1-2 from branches/6.1.1-newmake
type message.
