saving patches from the tracker

Hi list.
i've already checked the wiki to see if i can find an answer to my questions
but i haven't found one.
My question is this once i've found a patch i want to apply how exactly do i
save it to my computer in order that i can apply it later?
i no i must be doing something wrong. as i found several patches i wanted to
apply to rockbox, so what i did was on the page for the patch there was a
link to the patch file, i clicked it, and instead of getting a download box
up a new page came up with the code for the patch, i'd select everything and
then paste it into notepad and hit save giving it the extension of .diff.
Once i did that every time i tried to apply a patch it didn't like it and
wouldn't apply anything and came up with errors.
so what am i doing wrong?
also i've got another question what happens, if i do an svn update and i
have patches applied and the files on the svn have been modified?
wil my patched files be overwritten? or will the patched files just not get
updated with the latest ones from the svn.
What i mean is if I have patches applied that are just on the tracker but
aren't officially committed into the code will i have to reapply them or
what.
thanks for your help.
Alex.
