I think Eric Sink's source control HOWTO is a really great way to get started. Although it is about source control in general and not specifically Subversion the same concepts apply. The chapter on repositories is, in my opinion, the clearest explanation of what a repository is and how it functions.

Of course, if you haven't already taken a look at the Subversion book you'll want to do that as well.

Subject: Subversion Beginner - General Overview - Multiple Users

     Hi Everyone. I've been a programmer for a while now and I've recently needed at an increasing rate version control on my projects. After some research i've decided on Subversion. But I have a few general questions about the whole thing.
  
 Currently have I have a .net project on my local computer, and that is where it stays. No one else can work on it but me, and occasionally I back it up.
  
 If I set up a subversion server were multiple developers are accessing it for their projects, including me, how exactly does this work?
  
 If I have the whole project with code on the server, does it get copied down to my local computer when I check it out. I can then work on it, and check back in the whole project? Does it then copy back up any changed files?
  
 Do I keep my local copy of the project or do I always download everything from the server.
  
 These may sound like stupid questions but i'm just trying to grasp how this works. Thanks for all your help
  
 Bob
