You can take an online backup after you have changed the db
configuration to specify logfile archival.
Immediately after that you need to take an offline backup. From then on
you can take online backups.
Take care though that you keep the logfiles or you won't be able to
restore your database.
For the backup command syntax just enter backup ? on the command line.
I doubt it will be much faster though.
