If you are working on a fix for the current release, then you need to work
against the current stable *branch*.
In the instructions here http://wordpress.org/download/svn/ (mentioned in
one of the answers to your question the checkout would be
svn co http://core.svn.wordpress.org/branches/3.0
Make sure to indicate that your patch is against the branch when you submit
I'm not sure what could be any simpler than the instructions here
There are only 4 (svn) steps.
The only ones missing are 'do an svn revert and svn up' when you want to
start on the next piece of work.
