Heh, that's generally everyone's feeling when they first see it.

I generally recommend the "open" CVS book (as opposed to Cederqvist):

it's available online in HTML and has such useful stuff as "a day in the
life of..." and command-line reipies to do general bits and pieces.

PS. You'll probably find that a whiteboard map plus deciding how you're
going to set up your branches for a particular project vital. Doing "ad

consistent naming strategy at the outset is a lifesaver.
