I usually just do 'svnadmin create
\\servername\share\path\to\repo\root\reponame' from my local machine.
You need the console tools installed for this, though.

To create the trunk/tags/branches structure, you can use the
Repo-Browser, although bear in mind that this will create one revision
for each directory you make. If you want all three in a single revision
then you'll have to do either the checkout/mkdir/commit or the import
thing. All of that can be done from the client machine too.

I usually only create 'trunk' off the bat, and only create tags/branches
folders once I actually want to make a tag or branch. But that's partly
because they are mostly the exception rather than the rule for most of
the stuff I'm working on. YMMV.
