If you don't want to check out subfolders, you have to check the
checkbox "Only check out the top folder" in the checkout dialog.
But you shouldn't do that if you want to keep working with that folder.
Subversion doesn't like 'incomplete' folders (yet). For example, as soon
as you update such a folder, all subfolders will get added again.

The Subversion team is working on this though...
