Stupid newbie question

Hi All,

I am looking into using subversion for our version control system. We are replacing RCS. cvs2svn works wonderfully well in converting our data over. I can pull over our entire development tree with the greatest of ease. However, when I go to create a branch I get the following error:

svn: Connection is read-only

I can't seem to get svn to ask me to authenticate. I think it might be personal.

Here is my svnserve.conf file:

### This file controls the configuration of the svnserve daemon, if you
### use it to allow access to this repository. (If you only allow
### access through http: and/or file: URLs, then this file is
### irrelevant.)

### Visit http://subversion.tigris.org/ for more information.

[general]
### These options control access to the repository for unauthenticated
### and authenticated users. Valid values are "write", "read",
### and "none". The sample settings below are the defaults.
anon-access = read
auth-access = write
### This option controls the location of the password database. This
### path may be relative to the conf directory. There is no default.
### The format of the password database is:
[users]
griffinj = jgriffin
### USERNAME = PASSWORD
## password-db = passwd
### This option specifies the authentication realm of the repository.
### If two repositories have the same authentication realm, they should
### have the same password database, and vice versa. The default realm
### is the path to the repository, relative to the server's repository
### root.
realm = textbox

Note that the testbox is referred to by an IP address.

Any ideas on how I can get svn to ask me who I am?

John
