Yes just delete the files. :-) Are you using tortoise svn? Its really 
quite nice.

You have many questions about subversion, I understand, and while 
subversion is really pretty simple once you understand a few of the 
basics, its not really simple when you have never used it. I strongly 
suggest that you spend an afternoon reading Chapters 1 & 2 from here 
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ and while you are at it check out the 
section in the preface labeled "What is subversion". Once the 
fundamentals are clarified you will feel a lot more confident in using it.

In Christ,
David Trotz
