The best way to start is to learn the principles of the system you are
going to use. Please start with "Basic concepts"
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.basic.html) and then with
the excellent "Guided Tour"
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.tour.html) from the SVN
Book.

As you could see the first thing in the tour is "Import". And if you
know what a repository is (from "Basic concepts") you would understand
fairly easy what is an import from this simple sentence - "You use
_svn import_ to import a new project into a Subversion repository."

Nothing could beat *reading* a well-written documentation.
