How did you try to create the tag. I just tried using the branch/tag
dialog here with 1.5.8 and it works OK.

Notice that the copy-to URL is file:///\ instead of file://. Did you
enter that or was that conversion done automatically?

Is that the IP address of your own PC? If you have multiple users
accessing a repository using file:// access then please do yourself a
favour and set up a proper server. svnserve is really easy to set up.
The Windows server installer from collabnet will set up a server for
you, or you can use VisualSVN which provides the server component for
