I don't knom much about cvs2svn but for what you are describing here it
seems, that cvs2svn puts all the stuff in the 'trunk' directory inside
of the repository....
so there are basically 2 ways to solve that
1. get cvs2svn import the cvs stuff not in the trunk directory (don't
know if it's possible and how - experts your turn!!!)
2. move your stuff inside of the svn repo...
(and 3. realize some funny http-redirection with apache.....)

for the concepts and where the trunk-directory-theory comes from have a
look in the subversion-book

hth, micha
