If I want to preserve my Installshield projects, is it sufficient to copy the project (.ism) file into my SCM tool (Subversion), or do I need to copy the entire project folder?
Note, I don't need to worry about the actual data and code files, they're already under version control. I'm just wondering about the structure of the IS project itself.

If you're making use of InstallScript custom actions, you would also need to deal with the InstallScript (.rul) file too. But other than that, I think it would be sufficient to copy the .ism file into Subversion.
