how to make a previous repository version the actual one?

I am a subversion newbie, so perhaps this is a trivial question, but I
do not see the proper way to do it...

Assume that you have a project with a complicated directory structure,
lots of files etc. Suppose, you started a line of change, committed
many changes several times and after a week you notice, ups, it is
stupid what I am doing. Now I would like to return to the original
state of the project (i.e. two weeks ago).

My naive way of doing this would be:

svn up -r XX (where XX is the last good known version)
svn ci (check out this version as the new HEAD version)

But it does not work, because svn ci doesn't do anything, as none of
my files has changed...

So, what would be the best way to use subversion as a 'time machine',
and return to an older version?
