by reading your email, i guess you misunderstand
the way subversion works. in svn you don't checkout
(exclusively) or checkin files, as you do in VSS, CVS,
SCCS. svn has a different way of seeing things that
helps overcome the limitations of those older VCSs.

i'd suggest you to read the subversion book, more
precisely, the section "versioning models" in chapter
2.
