Heh, that's like saying, "I'm on a vehicle that identifies itself as a
car" :-)

You need to find out which distribution you are on and how that distribution
does software management. Every modern distribution already has SubVersion
packages that it supports.

For example, if you are using SuSE/OpenSuSE (look whether a
file /etc/SuSE-release exists) then you can use "YaST" to install SubVersion
which is a quite user-friendly dialog oriented system. If you are using a
text console, log in as root and type "yast -i" to get to the software
management GUI.

Other distributions have easy software management as well, I think in
Debian/Ubuntu you simply say "apt-get install subversion" as root but I don't
know for sure.
