either you passed 'svn status' a target that was not a working copy, or
you passed it a directory containing files you don't have read access
for. you need to give an exact transcript of the commands you used to
produce the error if you really want any kind of answer though.

same answer as before. were you in a checked out working copy when you
tried this?

svn is trying to open an editor to get a log message for the import
(since importing is a commit). you can either pass it on the command
line, or set one of those variables so it knows what editor to use.
'svn help import' should give you some hints.

also, try reading the subversion book, available at:
