If IE times out, then it can't reach the server. Simple as that.
That either means your apache is not running, not accepting connections
or a firewall is blocking access to it, or you've configured a wrong
port for apache to listen to.

svn:// won't work at all. For that to work, you'd have to set up
svnserve, not apache.

if the apache test page shows up on the svn folder, then you have your
<Location> block wrong or in the wrong place.
Make sure that your location block is outside any other blocks in the
config file, and put the svn block below the root but *not* below htdocs.
