VCS could be as flexible as you make it. From local file-based repositories to
distributed networked storage with master/slave failovers.
Or as rigid, as you need it. I.e. commit hooks.
If all you need is a local VCS, check Subversion. http://svnbook.org/
The "SVN book" will get you started in no time. And cover the essential basics
that will remain valuable even if you later need to switch to some other VCS.
With best regards,
