Users file in separate directory on Windows 2003

Hello everyone,

I have Subversion 1.0.5 setup on a Window 2003 Server computer. I have
a couple repositories setup under D:\svnRepositories\... and I want to
have one users file containing the users that have access to those
repositories. Currently each on svnserve.conf files look like this:

anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = D:/svnRepositories/userAccess.conf
realm = MiO SVN Repositories

And I am also running svnserve with the -r D:\svnRepositories\ option.
However, I am having a problem accessing that userAccess.conf file. For
example, when I try with one repository I get the error "svn: Can't open
config file
I've tried both forward and backward slashes, as well as
/svnRepositories/userAccess.conf, /D:/<...>, and /userAccess.conf. The
only way I could get it to work was to specify my password-db as
'../../userAccess.conf'. Is there anyway, in Windows, to specify an
absolute path to that file or only a relative directory? Thanks in
