disclaimer: I'm still somewhat new to SVN/TSVN and this list :)

If you've both changed the same lines, when you update your WC to get
his changes, SVN will create conflict files. Just pick up your changes
only, run SVN resolved ("Resolved" menu item) and commit your changes.
Otherwise, copy your file to somewhere outside of WC, update your WC
with his changes and then copy your file over the top of the updated one
in your WC and then commit.
