I'm pretty new to this too and I just wrote in with a very similar question

I remember reading in the manual that svn does not like drive references so if you are running it off 'C:'...

> svnserve -d -r /database/svnroot

would be the right command.

Since you are not we have a problem. I did notice, in the mailing list, a way to specify drives. In your case...

> svnserve -d -r file:///f|/database/svnroot

By appending a pipe (|) to the drive you can specify it. I haven't tried this yet, so if it doesn't work I'll just run back to my corner and let someone else give you a hand.

As for your other issues: I don't know.
