Beginner's questions

after installing Subversion via fink on MacOS X 10.4.9 and
running some test, I have
some questions which some of you might be able to answer.

1. Okay, the data in my repositories will mainly be LaTeX files,
since I need these for my work. Typesetting will produce PDF file,
which shouldn't be merged but overwritten. Does subversion know that
overwriting is necessary in these cases ordoes I have to tell it
somehow? Same question for MS-Word documents and similar which I have
to use sometimes in collaboration with some colleagues.

2. Currently I have a G4 desktop which holds the repositories. I also
have a PowerBook which I you for work at home and from outside. At
home I connect the desktop from the book via its Bonjour name
<something>.local, to connect it within my local net. From outside I
have to use a global name (in this case via dyndns). So the problem
appears that the same repository might apear under two different
names. How can I tell the working copy that its repository has "moved"?

3. What is a good way of backing up repositories? My current test
repository is located in my Documents folder, so it will be included,
when I burn this folder on CD. Will this copy be work after playing
in back from the CD in case? Are there better ideas?
