Yes. Chapter 6 explains there are two ways of invoking svnserve:

1. running svnserve as a daemon, and using its own built-in
authentication (CRAM-MD5) and private passwd file. No need for system
accounts. This is what svn:// urls are all about.

2. having svn clients run 'ssh remotehost svnserve', then talking to the
temporary svnserve process over the ssh tunnel. Users must have ssh
(system) accounts. This is what svn+ssh:// is all about.

Read chapter 6 closely... these are separate methods of using svnserve.
