No, /disk0 is just a slice of the disk. The output of ls -al looks like
this:

[jcockerham@sanwac595265 SVN]$ ls -al
total 40
drwxr-xr-x 8 jcockerham jcockerham 4096 Jul 7 13:30 .

drwxr-xr-x 7 jcockerham jcockerham 4096 Jul 7 13:04 .svn

I tested it and it works fine from root, but I still get this error when
trying to check out from user jcockerham:

[jcockerham_at_sanwac595265 jcockerham]$ svn co file:///disk0/SVN
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///disk0/SVN'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem

Please keep this on the list. Is /disk0 a network share? What does 'ls
-l' of /disk0/SVN look like? Do you have permission to even read within
/disk0?
