RE: Inter project dependencies

I have been asked to look into subversion as it has been decided that the project I am working on should be moved from visual source safe to subversion i order to ease collaboration with external partners.
I think I have gotten the hang of the basics by reading the subversion book and trying out a few examples on a "playground" subversion server we have setup.
My question is this. In the project we currently have several sub projects, each containing a separate application. Each application may however have dependencies to several of the other projects (App B may require a few source files that exists in app A's project folder). How do I setup these dependencies in subversion so that, a: whenever I checkout a sub project, I automatically get the files I need from the other sub projects, and b: each file exists only one in the subversion server and on my hard drive?
Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
