Subclipse uses a better approach than import. It first does a mkdir, then
a checkout of that dir into your existing structure. This turns your
project into a valid WC full of unversioned items that you can then
commit. If we used Import, you would then have to delete your project and
check it out again.

This error message sounds like a configuration issue. The server is
saying it does not understand the CHECKOUT command which is a DAV method.
Have you tried using the command line at all with the same URL. Can you
do svn ls or svn mkdir using the command line client? I am guessiong you
