Sorry, you're the Nth person to ask this question. I can't believe
the answer isn't in the INSTALL file. Karl is adding this to the
on-line FAQ right now...

ADDENDUM 1: Setting up the Repository Itself

If the repository you defined in step 8 doesn't already exist, you
will need to create it:

    % svnadmin create /absolute/path/to/repository

This creates an empty repository. Then you can import something into
it, either locally, or over dav:

    % svn import file:///absolute/path/to/repository /some/local/dir
    % svn import http://foo.com/repos/path /some/local/dir

The above examples import the contents of /some/local/dir right into
the root of the repository. If you want to put these contents into a
new repository directory, use *three* args to import. (Try 'svn help
