Subversion doesn't define the term "project". This term can have lots of 
different meanings, depending on the context. Subversion provides 
versioned storage of file trees plus a few additional small features, 
but that is all.

There are no nested repositories, every repository is its own universe 
without any dependencies on other repos. What you mean is directories 
inside a repository perhaps.

You can create a working copy (make sure you understand this term!) 
which only contains a subset of the repository it is associated with. 
This is the usual case, btw.

I think what you need to look at is the documentation explaining the 
idea behind the customary trunk/branches/tags layout. There you will 
also find a suggestion where to place that what is often considered as a 
project in this hierarchy. Also, make sure you understand both the scope 
(i.e. that SVN doesn't know what you consider a project) and 
terminology. Otherwise it's a bit difficult to communicate, if two 
people attach different meanings to the same term.
