Subversion roll-out strategy questions?

I work on a team of web developers and designers for a university and we
would like to implement Subversion on our testing server. While we all
recognize the need for some kind of version control, none of us have
much experience in the area. I think that everyone is a little hesitant
to get started because we don't want to get things wrong from the outset
and saddle ourselves with a screwed up implementation.

Our testing server is a Red Hat box which we access primarily via Samba
shares. Our sysadmin has installed Subversion for us, but he has little
experience with it either, so nothing has been added to it yet. We use
mostly PCs, with the occasional Mac. Our files are primarily html,
graphics, and some php.

Should we just dive in head first by adding everything into Subversion
and fumble our way along? Or is there some easier way to gradually get
everyone up to speed? I'm open to any suggestions, advice, or pointers.
Will Subversion be easy enough for our part-time student workers to be
able to handle without screwing things up?
