Local repository

I am moving from VSS to Subversion and have some queries. I'm reading
through the Subversion book (currently chapter 3), but I am getting a
little impatient so I have decided to post here.

The book keeps referring to a local repository. However is this a
repository like on the server or is this the actual project directory?

For instance: The remote store has three projects stored in it, ProjA,
ProjB and ProjC. Now I am working on ProjA which is java web app, so I
have a copy in d:\Develop\localhost\ProjA while ProjB and ProjC are
client and server java apps so they are in d:\Develop\java\Proj(B/C).

Now from what the book seems to suggest is that the local repository is
latest copy of the project. However the IDE (NetBeans) seems to want a
global local repository (that is one that is constant for all projects).

Which is it? Do I create a seperate directory "d:\SVN" and have the
projects I am working on copied there or do I have to remember to change
my local repository every time I checkout a project?

I'm confused. With VSS you simply pointed to a directory and away you
went. Very intuitive. Currently I have two conflicting models in my
head: Is the local repository my project directory or not? If so, how
does trunk etc. work when my ProjA directory has 6 subdirectories off
it's root?

Thanks, Graham.
