What are you trying to accomplish? Please try to explain it in
Subversion terms, because the way you describe it seems to indicate
you are not all that familiar with SVN. The usual workflow for SVN is:

0. You read the TSVN manual and the SVN book (svnbook.red-bean.com)
1. You create a repository on a server somewhere
2. You import an existing codebase into it (or start from scratch)
3. You check out a working copy on your local computer
4. You start modifying the files in your working copy
5. Prior to committing your changes you update your working copy
6. You resolve any reported conflicts and retest your code after the update
7. You commit your changes to the repository
8. Repeat from step 4 until you are done

All actions mentioned in these steps are available as TSVN commands in
the menu.
