how to stop managing a folder with SVN ?

Hi !
I wonder how to stop to manage a folder with SVN.
I created a repository and I imported a folder with my files into the
repository. Now my folder is under SVN management and is a working
directory witch contains .svn folders.
But I'd like to stop managing this folder and so the only way I found to
do this is to copy it into a temporary folder, remove it from the
repository and then copy the folder back from the temporary folder to
the original location. Then I make a search for .svn folders and delete
all of them. Now the folder is unmanaged, but it's not a simple thing to

Also I'm not sure that I should do that and that I well understood SVN
way to work. In fact, I need to delete .svn folders because I use SVN
for my own versioning needs, on my workstation, but I have to transfer
this files I worked on to another versioning system (Microsoft VSS via
Source Off Site) and .svn folders must not appear on it as my co-workers
would probably don't understand why I use another versioning system on
my workstation... :( I'm just trying to keep a track of my local work
and SVN is a nice "undo" feature :) thanks to all developers !
But as I said, I'm not sure I do in the right way...
So if you have clues to help me, or questions that I should ask myself
about this to find the right way to do, your welcome !
