New to SVN and TortoiseSVN

I've been playing with TortoiseSVN for the past day or two on WindowsXP and
have worked out most of what I require. I have one issue, though, that I'm
unable to resolve.
Here is the situation (everything mentioned in case my problem is related to
what I've done).
1. Installed SVN and TSVN and created a repository called MJFAF
2. Imported a folder containing Trunk, Branches and Tags folders
3. Imported multiple folders of source code into /MJFAF/Trunk/Source
Have been comitting changes all day without any problem
4. Decided to set up a 'server' using svnserve.exe. Finally got this
configured with a user/password and have tested logging in OK using svn://
The next stages is where my problems begin
When compiled, the output of my source code is placed in a different
location to my source (in fact it is a different drive).
I created a new series of folders like so:
Except for the /temp folder, each location contains multiple files
These all get imported into /MJFAF/Trunk without any problem.
TSVN rep-browser now shows this structure
I'm now at the stage I want to place the versioned files into the proper
Taking the BCB5 node as an example, I go to my location: c:\program
This location normally contains the folders 'Bpl' and 'Lib'. I temporary
rename the folders using Explorer and do a checkout using the 'Projects'
folder as the root.
TSVN creates the .svn folder but nothing else - and reports the error "Not
authorized to open root of edit operation"
What does this mean ? What am I doing wrong ? Have I gone about this the
wrong way ?
