Thanks for the suggestion, Karl. I have installed svn and TortoiseSvn.
There are a few things I don't care for in the version control system,
for example, the possibility of a file change versions when it hasn't
changed, the way the directory structure is forced (or highly
encouraged) into "trunks" and "branches", and the lack of a "view"
mechanism. Maybe I've got some of this wrong since I've only 
quickly reviewed the system. I come from a Clearcase background.

Any other ideas?
