RE: Easy get started howto

Take a look at the Subversion quick start in the .pdf manual. Subversion is
easy to set up on a Linux server. Heck! If I did it anyone can :) But it's
a lot of work, in the sense that it's time consuming, downloading the files,
porting them over in my case from windows to the linux server, making sure
to run them in a specific order, setting admin files etc.

You can download the windows version and set it up locally but that may
defeat the purpose of a repository unless it's on a server which gets backed
up nightly? If you want something easier look into VSS/Source Safe but you
still have to install a SQL server.

I have a friend who is a part-time VB developer (full-time zoo keeper) who
is unfamiliar with any version control software. I recommended he use
subversion and not worry about the complex details until he needs them. I
don't think he'll take my advice without a very simple how-to on getting
started using a local repository for simple, small projects. I would like
to point him to such a how-to. I'm sure he would find it indispensable,
but without a step by step how-to I don't think he'll give it a chance.

Is there such a how-to online somewhere? In particular is there a windows
centric how-to? I use Linux and I'm not sure how the command lines
translate when using subversion so I'm not confident my help is what he
