Missing a vector

I have just begun reading the book online, and found there is no obvious
entry path suggestion for my case. In "How to Read This Book", there are
several suggested paths, but none for the new administrator. The
individual I am talking about has several years experience using several
different version control systems at work, but none as an administrator.
In my case that would span TLIB, PVCS, and currently Perforce. But with
no experience as an administrator, I am somewhat at a loss where to
begin configuring a server for my home network. I don't believe this is
an uncommon situation.
To give you some idea where I am coming from, I have several computers
running various distributions of Linux and BSD Unix. Some are simply
file storage with disk space (>2TiB), others are running various
services, such as Apache and PostgreSQL. I have NetBeans/PHP on one
workstation, NetBeans/Java on another, pgAdminIII on a couple, and all
have Perl and gcc. I also have jdbc and Perl DBI drivers installed. I
use this network as a platform to learn various tools, servers and
languages. I am also experimenting with several projects of my own. But
Samba doesn't always provide a clean way to transfer files between
systems, and doesn't help at all with tracking where I made the last set
of changes, or if they got copied to the system I am on. So I need to
set up a VCS of my own to keep better track of my work.
I have NetBeans projects for both PHP and Java, disorganized C code and
Perl scripts, assorted SQL and text files, most of which will not be in
project trees now, but may need to be moved into them later.
I have already installed subversion 1.6.11 on Slackware/64 13.1 using
the normal tool (slackpkg). So where should I start?
