Can I just check out the directory and not the files?

Hi all-

I have a project in Subversion that I would like to add files to but I
don't want to get the files already there. Basically, the story is
this: I have a big directory in Subversion of images that I've worked
on and I'm now on a new machine, working on different stuff, and want
to add the new stuff to the repository, without having to wait while I
get all the enormous, many-hundreds-of-megabytes files that I won't
ever touch. Worse still, this new machine has very limited resources
and it simply won't handle a full checkout of the directory.

I understand the potential to want to add a file called foo.png when
there's already a foo.png in the repository, but I'd think the server
would complain if I tried to check that in.

Is this possible in Subversion?
