I have my svn repository set up locally and working properly.  I
followed the instructions for local SVN deployment w/ capistrano
for-local-svn-access).  I am able to connect to my server, however, it
doesn't put anything in the releases folder.  Why is this?

Also, in deploy.rb I set the repository to:
- but what I don't understand is where the trunk folder is.  I created
it setting up my svn repository but the only folders that appear in my
myapp folder are - conf,dav,db,hooks,locks.  I guess I don't
understand how all this works.  It would be great if there was a
tutorial for absolute beginners explaining every little step.

The files you mention are the db of svn - your development is stored

commit your changes so it is stored in the db again.
I suggest you read the introduction on svn:
