Comparing Version Control System software to Content Management System software

I'm working on my first collaborative website.  I've done a lot with Version Control System (VCS) software (SVN & SourceSafe), but have no experience with CMS software.  My collaborator is does great stuff graphically, but struggles with the technical stuff.  He's using Dreamweaver CS4 on his Mac.  I'm using Dreamweaver CS4 on my PC.  So, what's the best approach for managing the site files?  

It looks like there's embedded functionality in Dreamweaver.  (I've used Visual Studio in the past and am new to Dreamweaver)
It also looks like there's a ton of CMS software out there.  
There are also the VCS options that I'm familiar with (like SVN)

I'm looking for general guidance here.

Also the SVN component embeded in DW is not the best.

If there's just the 2 of you, DWs check-in/check-out system will work fine. DW's CICO isn't a version or subversion control system and it doesn't pretend to be. It's simple a method of locking files that are checked in, then making files read-only on your local version after checking in.

"then making files read-only on your local version after checking" out.
