problem with Quick Start

From: Roland Silver <rollos_at_kitcarson.net>

I've worked through almost all of the Quick Start in the Introduction
of the Book*, but now I'm stuck on page 7.
I have a (local) repository in /path/to/repos, and a working copy of
my project in /tmp/myproject:
Makefile bar.c foo.c
I'm not sure what the book means by "Enter your working copy", but I
cd'd to the directory /tmp/myproject/trunk),
edited foo.c using emacs, then tried to run svn diff (with my working
directory being /tmp/myproject/trunk) --
but I get the error message:

        svn: '.' is not a working copy

What's wrong? What do I do now?

I'm operating on an Apple PowerBook G4 running Mac OS X (version
I have a rough (VERY rough) ability to use the command line interface
using Terminal;
I have an incompetent sysadmin (myself);
I've installed subversion v1.3, apparently successfully.

* The "Book" is:
        Version Control with Subversion
        For Subversion 1.3
        (book compiled from Revision 2354)
