Unless I misread your original post, the very first option in that link
looks like a better fit. To rephrase it somewhat for your case:

1) Create a repository or a directory in the repository
2) Create your local files
3) Check out the empty repository path to your workspace - this won't
overwrite any of your files
4) svn add [files]
5) svn ci
6) Continue working as usual

This avoids a round trip to the server to push the current files, then
pull them back down to create the formal SVN working copy with things
already in it - instead you "check out" an empty directory which should
be quite fast.
