What happens on a checkout

I just got subversion completely working with webDav and started playing
around with my first checkouts and commits.
 
While playing around, i tested if you could check out the same folder
more than once. It did.
 
Now I have 3 folders that are checked out and contain a file test.txt .
I commited that last one I checked out and the server is now updated.
 
I'm left with 3 working copies. Can I remove them? Does the server store
something and wait for a file to be checked back in if it's checked out?
 
I understand usually I'll have one working copy and always keep it
there.
 
But can I delete these other 2 copies without future repercussions. I
tried deleting them already but it says the directory is now emtpy. I
now see there is a .svn folder in it and if I remove that first I can
delete it.
 
Is that ok to do?
 
Thanks for everyone's help on the board so far. I'm really excited about
using subversion. It's sweet!
