re: 403 Forbidden

I'm a newbie to Subversion, so forgive me if my question is obvious. I've
spent a few hours looking at the list archives, though, and I still can't
figure this out. Basically, I can create a repository, checkout a local
copy, commit, etc - everything except creating a branch from a local copy.
My setup is as follows:

Version: svn-1.0.6 for Win32 running on Apache 2.0 / Windows 2000 Server
Apache is running under user account "Apache" and this account has
read/write permissions to the repository directory.
The modules mod_dav and mod_dav_svn are loaded and seem to be working.
The following location tag is in the httpd.config:

<Location /svn/test_svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath c:\SVN_REPOS\test_svn
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
Require valid-user

When I try to create a branch typing the following at the command prompt:

c:\Inetpub\wwwroot>svn copy http://localhost:81/svn/test_svn/trunk

I get the following error:

svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/test_svn'
svn: PROPFIND OF '/svn/test_svn': 403 Forbidden (http://localhost:81)

and the following in the error log:

[Tue Jul 27 15:06:33 2004] [error] [client] Could not fetch
resource information. [403, #0]
[Tue Jul 27 15:06:33 2004] [error] [client] The URI does not
contain the name of a repository. [403, #190001]

Why would I only get this error trying to do a copy? Any help would be
greatly appreciated.
