You need to create the repository explicitly:

    % svnadmin create /repos/path

Then you can import something into it, either locally, or over dav:

    % svn import file:///repos/path /some/local/dir

    % svn import http://foo.com/repos/path /some/local/dir

Can you send us a documentation patch? Tell us where this critical
step should have been mentioned? :-)
