Windows, svnserve and authentication

Hi,

I'd like to know if the Subversion server can be installed on Windows 2000
and used to serve clients from remote workstations through svnserve with
authentication? I have got it to work using local access with file://, but
when I try to access the repository through svnserve, I can't check in or
write to it as it responds by saying the repository is read only.

Going through the svn book, it appears that I can't push the authentication
details to svnserve. If needed, it will demand it when a user accesses the
repository through it. How do I get it to demand authentication, so that it
allows me write access to the repository. I've got svnserve.conf in the conf
directory with the following entries

anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd.conf
realm = Test realm

The passwd.conf file has entries like

[users]
user1 = password1
user2 = password2

Is using Apache the only way I can serve remote subversion clients with
authentication? If this has been explained before in the mailing list or in
other documentation, a pointer to it will suffice

Thanks in advance,
Anoop
