1. Install a Subversion Client

MacOS Download subversion installer, Cornerstone 2 or Eclipse;

Windows Download Tortoise, SmartSVN or Eclipse; or

Linux Install from source or via your package management utility. e.g.:

	yum install subversion
	apt-get install subversion
	

2. Checkout your Repository

First copy the above URL and using your terminal / command line app, checkout your repository locally:

	cd ~/sources
	svn co --username jesseyowell https://spiderpigjesse.svn.cloudforge.com/newsvn
	

3. Add some files and directories

Now you've referenced your on-line repository, it's time to add something.

	cd newsvn
	echo "first line of my first file... yay\!" > helloworld.txt
	svn add helloworld.txt
	

4. Commit it to the server

	svn commit -m "my commit message" helloworld.txt

    Steps 2 through 4 seem to apply to linux/unix installations.  What about windows?  Isn't this a general guide for all platforms?
