Beginners cry fro help getting started

Hello experts,

I have been developing a software system for a couple of years now.
During that time I had to customize certain areas for different
customers and that resulted in
me having 5 different "copies" of originally the same software.
Much of the code of those different "copies" is (or should be) of
course exactly the same.
I did the merge of changes to one of the copies to the other by using
"compare to each other" in Eclipse
and merge the differences manually.

I looked at subversion and decided to use it.
I got it installed and running nicely.

Here is where I would like to ask for your help:

Can someone please help me taking the steps to "import" all these
various "copies" I currently have into subversion?

How do I create branches from these copies?
Or canI?
Do I have to dedicate one copy as the trunk first ?
Can I actually import the copies into branches?

I am somehwat lost and in dire need to get this working.
A nice step by step guide would of course rock!
I worked with the subversion book but it seems not to answer these
questions for me.

I appreciate your help!
