Newbie user startup problems with TortoiseSVN 1.6.6

From: Richard Owlett <rowlett_at_pcnetinc.com>
Date: Fri, 04 Dec 2009 12:46:38 -0600

Environment:
WinXP Pro SP2, single machine, single user, installed using
TortoiseSVN-1.6.6.17493-win32-svn-1.6.6.msi from
http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads

I've never used a version control before. When I asked questions
I was reffed to (and read)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Version_control and
http://www.ericsink.com/scm/source_control.html. Based on the
later and comments on my needs, I chose TortoiseSVN. My
repository *WILL BE* on a local drive.

The installation apparently went smoothly. I got fewer warnings
from my firewall (COMODO) than I expected.

I then attempted to setup following the procedure in the Help
section 3.1. Repository Creation.

Following the procedure in 3.1.2 I successfully created a
repository in which I was able to create folders and add files to
them using "Repository Browser".

*However*, when I attempted the alternate method for creating a
folder structure given in the end of section 3.1.5 I failed.

I
1. right clicked on the destination (C:\tst_repository)
2. chose Import on menu
3. entered file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement in box labeled
    "URL: of repository"

Error messages were:

Command: Import C:\tst_repository to
file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement
Error: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
Error: Unable to open repository
'file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement'
Finished!:

The first line seemed to indicated system was trying to do
opposite of what I desired. So I tried:

4. right clicked on the _source)(C:\tmp)
5. chose Import on menu
6. entered file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement in box labeled
    "URL: of repository"

Error messages were:

Command: Import C:\tmp to file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement
Error: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
Error: Unable to open repository
'file:///C:/tmp/Spectrogram_Replacement'
Finished!:

Secondary problems, listed only because they may be informative
symptoms.

1. Repository creation using command line option as in Section
    3.1.1 failed as there is no svnadmin executable on the system.
    Is the Help out of sync with released code? or symptom of
    improper install?

2. When I bring up the Export screen, clicking on Help gives a
    TortoiseProc errormesage "Failed to launch help". However,
    Help launches successfully from "Repository Browser" and
    "Import" screens.

Thanks for any pointers.
