I have been a user of cvs through my work, and I have the need for a
versioning software at home that can run on a Windows box and control
source code for java apps.


Anyway, last evening, I tried reading through the docs ... but there
seems to be a large amount of information on Subversion. I ended up
downloading a binary executable and did a install. After the install ...
I was lost on what to do. I noticed the docs showing some commands ..
but wasn't sure whether to use a cmd window, to issue commands in, or if
I should be executing a Subversion executable to configure the server.
It was unclear also, if the server, and client were in the download?


My only need would be to create a repository .. for a test project.
After that, is there a gui like wincvs? It looks like there is a web


I apologize, but if I could get a 40000 feet idea of what I am supposed
to do would really help. I was just overwhelmed by the amount of links,
tutorials, books, etc, about this project.

All I want to do is get something set up fast, and get started.


Thanks for your time,
