newbie question: svn update only added files

Hi all,

First-time poster. I'm pretty new to Subversion, so bear with me if (a) this is a silly and/or incomprehensible question, (b) I don't supply enough info, or (c) I'm doing something incorrectly to begin with.

That said, the problem is pretty simple. In a development branch of our website, I deleted a file and added a new file to replace it. I committed my changes and returned to the checkout we use to actually serve the pages. However, I wanted to update the new Add, update a couple other changes elsewhere, and then update the Delete. I figured I could simply do the following, but got the error shown:

   19 (central)[3:11pm][popups]> svn status -u
          * 158 336x280.2004-07-01.html
          * 336x280.2004-08-02.html
   Status against revision: 161
   20 (central)[3:11pm][popups]> svn update 336x280.2004-08-02.html
   svn: '336x280.2004-08-02.html' is not under version control

Now, this makes sense to me. However, there has to be a logical way to go about this, no? Is there any way to `svn update filename' on an Add without just calling `svn update' on the whole dir and getting all changes at the moment?

FWIW, I pored over the FAQ, browsed "The Book" and its section on update, and even searched around the list archives.

Thanks in advance if anyone can shed some insight!
