Newb help moving to older revision of file

I'm trying to figure out how I can restore an older copy of a single
file in my working copy and then commit that back to the branch I'm
working on.

 From the SVN book I gather that I'm supposed to use svn merge but I'm
just not getting it.

I've "updated" my file to the older revision and can see that it's the
revision I want, and can make changes to it. However, when I check the
status of my working copy svn tells me there is a newer version of the
file on the repository...

How do I make this old version commit with my project as a new revision?

After a few months of using SVN this is the first time I've had to do
this and I'm totally in the dark about this process that seems more
than a little opaque.

Thanks for the help.
