externals relative to server root

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.5.4.14259 on XP SP2, for Subversion 1.5.3
Windows Server 2003.

This works, when set as an svn:externals property:

Externals/Inno svn://
192.168.0.4/Pegasus%20Development/Internal/Inno/Opera%20II
Externals/Source svn://
192.168.0.4/Pegasus%20Development/Internal/Bridge%20Security%20Manager/Opera%20II/trunk/Install/Source

If I change it to:

Externals/Inno /Pegasus%20Development/Internal/Inno/Opera%20II
Externals/Source
/Pegasus%20Development/Internal/Bridge%20Security%20Manager/Opera%20II/trunk/Install/Source

I get the error:

Invalid svn:externals property on 'svn://
192.168.0.4/Pegasus%20Development/Bridge/Opera%20II%20v6/Contract%20Splitting/trunk/Install':
target '/Pegasus%20Development/Internal/Inno/Opera%20II' is an absolute path
or involves '..'

at the point of applying it.

I thought I had defined the relative path correctly according to TSVN help
and the red bean book. How can I get a url relative to server root?

Thanks! Robin
