Re: Problem using SVN

Glad to hear your message regarding your success. Yes -- I followed the
manual for the most part, some times more than others. After my fifth time
building a repository, I decided to post for help. This is the forth or
fifth different type of source control system, and I have been excited about
what I have heard until I tried it first hand.

Is the status supposed to change when you check a file out? It doesn't do
much for me. I suppose that I will have to tinker for a while until I get
the hang of what I am doing wrong. I have tried downloading tortisesvn
twice in the last three days, but the download keeps failing -- maybe there
is a server down or something.

Anyway, thanks for the help,
