Did you read the [free!] link that I gave you yesterday?  Both the TortoiseSVN manual [1]
and the online subversion book [2] are pretty much essential reading if you want to get the
most out of subversion (there is a lot of common material in both books but TortoiseSVN is
IMO a slightly better reference for a windows user).  Read the introduction / fundamental
concepts / basic usage sections.  Those sections don't take too long to read.



In general, the root checkout folders do not have to have the same name; this allows you to
have multiple local working copies if you need/want to work on several tasks at the same time.
 Sub-folders will be named the same by the client when created and if you change any of the
folder names the "wrong way" you will run into "conflicts"  This is all explained in the subversion
