Docs for newbies

Once now and then I write some documents together with different people,
usually we are in different locations and more than two people. We often use
LaTeX so subversion would be the ideal tool for making this work easier, now
we usually share by sending emails with attachments.

The problem seems to be that I'm usually the only one that has any experience
with version control systems and when I suggest that we should use one it
usually ends up with "ohhh, it sounds so complicated and we don't have to
time to learn about version control". Sigh ...

Anyway, I'm looking for a newbie tutorial that describes the principles of
version control, together with some instructions of how to use it (no fancy
stuff, just basic updating etc) hopefully using some kind of GUI client.
Preferable for Windows, OS X and Linux.

Does such a tutorial exists (note they are computer scientists, researchers
in other areas than programming/software engineering, but are not used to use
version control) ?
