Or in many cases you can just use the pre-compiled binaries from the
download page - there are quite a few OS flavours available.

You might also want to look at using a GUI client. TortoiseSVN is one
such for Windows (tortoisesvn.tigris.org) but there are others too. TSVN
installation is very easy - one install file does it, then you just
point it at your repository. The only complications are if you have
trouble getting through a company firewall or proxy.
