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.
