win98 problem: another process has locked a portion of the file

Hello,

in order to fix the error about not being able to obtain a UID on win98 I'm
trying to follow the FAQ's recipe
svn co --username user http://server/repository
However I have a problem:
after creating an empty directory svn on my F: partition, I did
F:\svn>svnadmin create f:\svn\rep
which seemed to be doing OK, followed by
F:\svn>svn co --username roger file:///svn/rep
resulting in this error message:

svn: Couldn't open a repository.
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///svn/rep'
svn: The process cannot access the file because another process has locked
a po
rtion of the file.
svn: get_repos: shared db lock on repository `/svn/rep' failed

and including the F:\ in the path (which I shouldn't as I understood from
part C in The Definitive Guide) gives
F:\svn>svn co --username roger file:///f:/svn/rep
svn: Obstructed update
svn: 'rep' is already a working copy for a different url

Funny (at least, to me), is when I reverse these commands, the error
messages are not reversed:
F:\svn>svnadmin create aaa

F:\svn>svn co --username roger file:///f:/svn/aaa
svn: Couldn't open a repository.
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///f:/svn/aaa'
svn: The process cannot access the file because another process has locked
a po
rtion of the file.
svn: get_repos: shared db lock on repository `f:/svn/aaa' failed

F:\svn>svn co --username roger file:///svn/aaa
svn: Obstructed update
svn: 'aaa' is already a working copy for a different url

Is there some help for me?
Thanks in advance,
Roger
