I'm afraid it depends on your access requirements. Seriously. Which
access technology are you using? svn+ssh (which I tend to recommend),
or Apache (using https://), or svn directorly (svn://) Start with that
and we'll walk you through it.

And please read the walkthroughs at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/,
which are pretty good, so we can help based on *which* approach you
want to use.
