Commit failed (I'm a beginner to Subversion and TortoiseSVN)

I am new to Subversion and TortoiseSVN. I installed the latest versions
of both on a Windows XP machine that is stand alone (not on a network).
Using TortoiseSVN, I set up the repository on a local hard drive using
the example path n the manual. Also, using that tool, I tried to
"commit" one of the files but got the following messages:

Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: File already exists: filesystem 'C:/SVN/MyNewRepository/db',
transaction '2
-1', path 'helloCVS.cpp'

I had posted this issue on the TortoiseSVN group and upon the advice of
one of the respondents, I am posting here. I reproduced the same problem
using the CLI. Here are the resulting messages:

Adding helloCVS.cpp
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File already exists: filesystem 'C:/SVN/MyNewRepository/db',
transaction '2
-1', path 'helloCVS.cpp'

I did a search in this group for some answers to similar issues to this
but wasn't able to find any. What throws me off is the transaction
message. Also, if it is already in the repository, I think I should be
able to check it out. I am unable to do that using TortoiseSVN.

As always, any response would be appreciated even it refers to a website
or additional documentation.
