Most likely something like this:

  SVN
     /trunk
           /linux-2.6.10
           /your_application
           /anything_else
     /branches
              /new_whizbang_branch
                                  /linux-2.6.10
                                  /your_application
                                  /anything_else
              /customer_release_0.99_branch
                                           /linux-2.6.10
                                           /your_application
                                           /anything_else
     /tags
          /official_beta
                        /linux-2.6.10
                        /your_application
                        /anything_else

You would check out SVN/trunk to get the trunk "set". If you wanted
to work with a particular branch, then you'd check out branches/XYZ

Get the idea?
