Is it possible to check out a part of the repository tree?

Hi,

I have a question: Is it possible to check out a part of the repository
tree?

I tried the following but could not find the answer.
Suppose we have the following folder structure:
        db (folder)
            Help (folder)
                file1 (file)
                file2 (file)
                ch (folder)
                        file3 (file)
                        file4 (file)
I used the command line:
        svn co -N file:///h:/db/Help h:/myClient/Help
The content of Help appeared in the local working folder.

But when I tried to do the same operation to the folder ch by:
        svn co -N file:///h:/db/Help/ch h:/myClient/Help/ch
The following error occurred:
        Working copy "myClient/Help/ch" not locked.

What is the reason? What I want to do is to add the permission control to
Subversion, in a similar way like SourceSafe. That is to say, a folder is
visible to user A but invisible to user B. For doing this, I have to be able
to control a part of a repository tree.

Thank you for your answer.
