rename confusion (changing case of a folder name in repository)

Hi All

I am quite new to using subversion and am trying to change the case of a
folder name in the repository.

The repository structure is something like this:
/trunk/SoftwaRe1/Project1/
              ../Project2/
/trunk/Software2/Project3/

I wish to rename the "SoftwaRe1" folder to "Software1". That is, I just want
to change the case of the letter "R". I can do this easily using TortoiseSVN
(on WindowsXP) by using the repository browser.

Each of the projects "Project1", "Project2" is checked out and worked on
separately only by me. No-one else is working on any of the Software1
projects.
After renaming the folder, when I try to make commits (for example for
Project1), I get an error about the path to the repository not being found
(which is clearly true).

Is there any way that I can redirect the commits to the new renamed path?
Or, is there a better way to go about changing the case of a repository
folder name?
Or, should I rename the folder back and just put up with the name as it is
even if it annoys me every time I see it! (note: I didn't create the folder)
.

Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Cheers
Andrew Mc
