Subversion doesn't enable copying between repositories with history as
you have attempted. Whilst you can copy folder/files from one WC to the
other and then SVN Add them to another repo you cannot do it directly as
an operation on the repositories on the server.
It would be a good idea to read the svn manual and the excellent FAQ. I
should do so again too after giving a less than optimal answer to a
previous question.
