All too often, "test" becomes "production." It's better to do things
right from the beginning. Especially when doing it right is easier
than doing it wrong as part of a "test".

1) SVNParentPath should point at a path which is a directory
containing one or more repositories. Not a URL, and not a path
directly to a repository directory.
2) Apache may interpret the backslash as an escape character. Use c:/
instead of c:\
3) Apache will not see your mapped drive letters, because those are
mapped at the time a user logs on interactively. Apache doesn't log on
interactively, and it doesn't log on as you - therefore, no mapped
drive letter. As a result, you're back to either:
A) Do it right by not pointing at a repository on a network share
and instead one on a drive local to the server
B) Do it the hard way, pointing at a repository on a network share
using a UNC path, setting up the permissions on that share such that
the user ID Apache runs under on your "server" has full permissions on
that share. This is usually a major chore because most of the time,
Apache will be running under the local service account and not a
