Question regarding http methods...

Hello all. I'm fairly new to subversion, and i've gotten as far as
getting the web browser of repos's working, and i've gotten imports, co,
and commits working for the file:// url. However, for some reason
(probably becuse i lead a bad life) i cannot get the http:// method

Here's my puzzlement...

>$ svn co http://localhost/svn/subversion svn5
svn: RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND of /: 405 Method Not Allowed

And here's what my http logs say:

localhost - - [02/Dec/2002:17:14:16 -0500] "PROPFIND /svn/subversion
HTTP/1.1" 301 308
localhost - - [02/Dec/2002:17:14:16 -0500] "PROPFIND /svn HTTP/1.1" 301
297 localhost - - [02/Dec/2002:17:14:16 -0500] "PROPFIND / HTTP/1.1" 405

and no error in the error log.

I'm quite mystifed. I know this error occurs if the web server doesn't
have permissions to the repo, but if it didn't i've noticed that the web
browsing interface doesn't work either - since it IS working, i've ruled
that problem out. Everything seems to be in order...

I don't have any "limit" or "limit except" statements in my httpd file,
either, so i've ruled that out.

I'm kind of wondering why i'm getting a 301 error (moved permanently)
though... I've even gone to the extent of ugo+rw every file, to no
