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.
