Desperately Seeking Help

Hello all:

I've spent most of today, and good chunk of yesterday on this, with a
colleague helping as well. No closer to a resolution... There's
Wit's End: I can see it clearly from here.

We're trying to set up a new project on an existing repo. Chad (my
colleague) setup the directories and permissions on the Linux box. I
was able to checkout and update the project via TortoiseSVN. But when
I tried committing it gakked on me with:

Commit failed (details follow):
Can't create directory '/var/svn/content/db/transactions/520-1.txn':
Permission denied

But wait! It doesn't end there. You'd think this was a straight
permissions issue, yes? Chad tweaked the perms, and I still couldn't
get passed the commit. So, I went and did it from a Linux box, and it

Then I tried doing it from my Windows DOS box, and it said my svn
client was out of date. So I updated it, first using the CollabNet
binaries, then the SlikSVN bins. Now when I try doing a commit from
the command line it says:

svn: This client is too old to work with working copy 'C:\websites\btsc
\wc'; please get a newer Subversion client

:( Actually, it *used* to say it couldn't tunnel. But I just
rebooted and now it's reverted to this.

So, I tried updating my svn client, but I think all I goty was the
server. Where can I get the command line client for Windows XP?

And how can I get passed this permission issue with TSVN?

Thanks for your help!
