git init - Initializes a git repository.
git add <files> - Tells git to add the files for the net commit
git commit - this checks in file

In essence in git you have a live directory of files. You don't check
out in the traditional sense. Every developer has his/her own copy of
the repository. Look at the clone and pull examples the others have posted.

You can get a lot of good info here:
