I am trying to get familiar with svn through the documentation, but I still
haven't found the way to specify the repository location. You said I could
either use file:/// or svn:///. My OS is Windows XP. Do I need to specify
somewhere that I want to use file:/// or svn:///? Imagine I go for file:///,
how should I specify the path (which is: G:\svn\repos\)?

BTW in the subclipse wizard if I leave the authentication fields (user and
password) empty , it doesn't allow me to get any further.

Thanks again
Paolo
