It's not that 'authz doesn't permit drive letters': rather, authz
refers to repository-internal-paths, so it has no *relation* with
drive letters.

The above means that your authz file should probably have looked like:

       *** authz ***
       [groups]
       training = fotini,hedley,kellie,neil

       [/] training = rw
       * = r

Sure. That means svnserve is correctly working and doing what it's told to do.

No need, as said above: it's a repository-internal pathname, not a
physical filesystem one.

HTH,

Erik.
