So I created a passwd file in the repositories conf/ directory. This still didn't seam to help. I'm not to thrilled about having the actual password in a file. I would like to have the system more secure. I would venture to say that others out there have a similar setup with the server running on Linux and the client running on Windows.

Look in /path/to/repos/svnserve.conf -- you can set "anon-access=write"
to allow anonymous write access.

If you want different authentication methods that are smarter than using
a plain password file, you'll need to use Apache as your server, then
you can use any auth mechanism that Apache supports.

Cheers,
Mike.
