Yet another nenwbie question

Hi. I'm an old-time CVS user who's just stumbled into subversion. LOVE
IT! Except for one newbie gotcha I hope someone can help with.

I've read the "BOOK" but it seems to skip that crucial step between
installing subversion binaries and getting the first project imported
successfully into it.

I'm at work now and don't have the precise commands I tried before me,
but here's roughtly where I stalled (from memory)

        svnadmin create /opt/svn # /opt is writable by me BTW
        svn import MyProject file:///opt/svn/MyProject

I got an error saying MyProject is a bad URL. From the archive I gather
that I'm missing the step that explains how to configure svn to use
other than the default settings. I know its in the expert's HOWTO
somewhere but that's not what I need as a newbie.

I think what I need is to eliminate the requirement to type file:mumble
on every command, and of course fix whatever's causing that bad url. For
now I'll have only one repository and no interest in umpteen ways of
doing whatever; just a recipe for doing it *RIGHT*.

Hopefully the right way involes svnserver (or apache), not file:
arguments on every command.
