You should consider upgrading to 0.37 - it is the current 1.0 release

As root, you need to:
chown -R svn:svn /path/to/repo
chmod -R u+rw,g+rws /path/to/repo

Replace svn:svn with your subversion user and group.

Also make sure your umask is set to 002, otherwise files get created with
the wrong permissions in the repo.
