I've recently had a quasi-related problem, and perhaps the two
problems can shed light on each other (unless, as the timeout above
suggests, you have a more fundamental networking problem). I set up
DAV access to a new and empty repository; the top of the repository
was made available at /whatever/ and "DAV svn" and the rest was
declared for that Location. I then tried to import projects as
suggested in the manual like so:

  svn import . http://myhostname/whatever/

I then got an error like "PROPFIND request failed on /whatever".
Of course, DAV isn't on in /.

I got around this by doing a file:// import, but what did I do
wrong/sub-optimally, if anything? Is this a common newbie gotcha? It
sure felt like one when I was getting gotten :).
