'svnadmin dump' dumps a set of revisions, and 'svnadmin load' loads
a set of revisions. And a revision is an *entire* tree.

You need to use 'svndumpfilter' to accomplish what you want.

  svnadmin dump oldrepo | svndumpfilter | svnadmin load newrepo

The svndumpfilter program filters specific paths in the
dumpstream... so you probably want something like

  svnadmin dump oldrepos | svndumpfilter include /usr/local/svn/projectA

... it's not clear to me, though, how you would load *into* a specific
directory in the new repository.
