OK it seems like I've been doing steps 3 and 4 incorrectly in your
explanation. The reason I ended up doing this:
 - the projects actually _are_ in C:\S60\S60 or in X:\S60 as it points to the
same directory
 - now after making a TSVN's Import for directory xxx in X:\S60 I want to
start using it with TSVN
 - I can't make checkout for X\S60\xxx as it already contains stuff so I end
up deleting the whole directory (messing up TSVN) so I can make an empty
directory and make checkout for that

Yes when I was getting familiar with TSVN I first made a test repository.

Yes, thank you. But I still don't get it why I can't do a checkout for a
directory that I have just imported to SVN?
