You use merging to put the directories back. If you just want to look at
the deleted dirs you need to read up on Peg Revisions:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn-book.html#svn.advanced.pegrevs

For your checkout command you just need to add "@5220" to the end of
your url:
checkout -r5220
https://sagan/svn/projects/Quotations/trunk/3Q-2008/220@5220

The "@5220" rolls the repository back in time and displays the directory
structure at the time of 5220. If you don't use "@5220" then "-r 5220"
tries to find the directory in the current (HEAD) directory structure.
