=>You're on the right track. The 'p4 client sandbox' command *defines* the 
=>client, meaning where you want it (Root) and how that location maps to 
=>the server (View). You don't need to create or be in the directory that 
=>is your root. Perforce will do that for you. Your next step is 'p4 sync' 
=>which will give you read-only copies of your source. Then you'll do 'p4 
=>edit', 'p4 add', 'p4 delete', and so forth.
=>I'd recommend going through the Perforce User's Guide. It gives you some 
=>step-by-step scenarios to get familiar with Perforce.

I'd also strongly recommend the O'Reilly book "Practical Perforce". It 
clears up a lot (but not all) mysteries. ;-)
