* check your access log
* check the error log (maybe you'll see something like "authuserfile not
found" or something similar)

I'm not sure if apache really accepts the backslash in your paths. I
would try using forward slashes instead.

Point your webbrowser to the URL. If you're not asked for
authentication, then it's not really a Subversion problem but your setup
(which it most likely is).
