Have you looked at the TortoiseSVN manual?

It doesn't assume that the reader has any prior knowledge of Subversion
at all. It has a good introduction to Subversion, including the
"Versioning Models" and other sections lifted directly from the
"official" SVN book. It also has good info on setting up either Apache
or svnserve on Windows.

In short, it's not just a TSVN manual, it's a complete
using-Subversion-on-Windows manual. In fact, assuming that most of your
users will use TSVN only and not the command-line client, I'd recommend
blurring the distinction between TSVN and Subversion as much as
possible. When you say "Subversion" to most Windows users, they think of
the little icons in Explorer, not the client library or command line tools.
