[svlug] Need advice/help managing documents - Subversion? GIT?

I have several laptops that I use (my own, issued by work, my wife's) plus
my desktop Linux box. On each one I have differing subsets of documents,
hopefully not in different versions :) and no really consistent way of
syncing them up or backing them up.
I was thinking about setting up Subversion or GIT, and checking the files
in/out of that. I've never worked with either one, though I have a lot of
experience with CVS and ClearCase. So a few questions...
1. Would this be a good idea? Should I use SVN or GIT or is there something
else I should consider?
2. How would I need to organize my files to make this work? For example I
don't want to have a copy of everything on every machine - just the
particular project that I need to work on at that moment in time.
3. Any other tips or ideas....?
Another wrinkle: my work laptop spends most of its time behind a firewall
that only allows outside access via HTTP proxy, and it runs Windows.
Whatever solution I use needs to run on Windows and needs to have some way
of tunneling across that proxy. I could set up SSH port forwarding via
SecureCRT but would prefer if it had native HTTP proxy support using its own
SSH. WinCVS does SSH but as far as I know not with HTTP Proxy. What about
SVN or GIT clients for Windows?
