Default Subversion and system files

Hello, I'm on FreeBSD 7.0 and I've installed Subversion with the intention of placing my system files (/etc and /usr/local/etc) under revision control. Can someone give me a clue on how to do this in Subversion? When I create a repository from /etc all I'm doing is taking a copy of those files; when I check them out and edit them I'm just editing the copy, not the actual file in /etc. Can some explain to me how I'm supposed to be doing this, I've never used any type of revision control software before.

Many thanks.
