It depends why you want to split the repository. If the projects must
be kept completely separate and in different repositories then you
have to do as Stefan suggests and make a whole new repository. But
normally if you want to create a new project based on on another, and
especially if you want to port fixes on project B back to project A,
then just make a copy within the repository. If project A is currently
trunk, then you may want to move it first from /trunk to
/trunk/projectA (easiest using repo browser). If you do this you will
need to 'switch' your working copy to the new path. Then use repo
browser again, or the branch/tag dialog to create a copy of project A,
with the new name.
