My company also does .NET development using Visual Studio 2005. This
includes both ASP.NET and WinForms. I'll give you some short answers below
but you should read chapters 1-3 of the svn book:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/. We also use the TortoiseSVN client and some of
us use AnkhSVN.

You install the svn server on a server that all develops can access. With
only several thousand mostly-text source files and a few thousands
revisions, our experience has been that this is a light-weight application
and does not need a dedicated machine.

If I have the whole project with code on the server, does it get copied down

Yes, although you need to explicity tell svn what new files should be added
to the svn repository and what files should be deleted. Modifications are
automatically detected.

Definitely read the book!
