bringing multi subdomain website under svn control

Hi,

I have a particular question about "real-world" subversioning of a
complex website. (I'm a newbie who's read a lot of subversion stuff over
the past few days!) I apologise if I ask stupid questions, I am really
coming to grips with this at the moment. SVN is easy to set up if youre
starting from scrath - and I have done this a few times with great
success, but this is the problem I am currently working on...

A web site I run is set up with a few subdomains,
domain
www.domain
css.domain
js.domain
misc.domain
img.domain
...
because I use mass virtual hosting, these are separate folders under the
server root, each with their own document root
domain/public
domain/private
css.domain/public
css.domain/private
and so on

obviously I dont want to include img in any subversion repo, but what
would be the best way of bringing the other folders under subversion
control so that they are controlled as "one project" since they are
obviously related in this way, (I use tortoiseSVN as my client but dont
have to)

The other question is more about "dirtyness" alot of websites (mine
included) end up with mp3's, and many other files which are not source
files. What has been vexing me for the last few days is how to bring an
existing website of say a a thousand scripts, and another thousand mp3s.
temp files, folders, log files and so on... all under svn so that I
exclude those files which are not relevant, and dont end up with an
enourmous subversion database.

more info: I have the subversion service running as a windows service,
(I dont really want to go the webdav/apache module route)
The mass virtual hosting is done on the same box, and this is the box I
work on to edit the files. (but svn is to allow some colleagues remote
access which I am comfortable setting up securely)
