First off, take a few moments to read the TSVN and/or SVN manual to make
yourself comfortable with the terminology.

As to your question on tagging: SVN is intended to tag entire folders/trees
with files. Generally you work on a main tree ('trunk') until a product is
finished and then you create a tag of the whole tree. This is a cheap
operation (no content copies take place, SVN creates 'shallow' copies).
