You need to modify your svnserve.conf inside the repository/conf directory:
apart from read/write access to authorized users a line like
password-db = userfile.txt should be there
the contents of this userfile.txt contains the userid and password:
something like:
[users]
bush = asshole

etc.
or put it directly in svnserve.conf

Also check if your server is started with or without ssh (-t option).
with ssh you need to checkout with svn+ssh.
