svn import with svnserve on Windows

Hello,

Context: Working with Revision 10061 of the html 'VC with
           svn book'.
           Windows 98
Installed: svn-win32-1.0.6.zip
           Installation directory is not in path

1) In one dos window, ran:

   c:\opt\svn\svn-win32-1.0.6\bin\svnserve -d

2) In another dos window, did:

   c:\opt\svn\svn-win32-1.0.6\bin\svnadmin create c:\tmp\testsvn

   This did create the testsvn directory with stuff
   inside it.

3) Then created the following:

   c:\opt\vim\uwdist\tms\
                         branches
                         tags
                         trunk\
                               <the stuff I want to
                                revision control:
                                files and sub-directories
                                with files etc.
                                everything is plain text;
                                no binary stuff>

4) Finally, tried to give the above to 'svnserve' for
   version control:
   
   -------------------------------------------------
   c:\opt\svn\svn-win32-1.0.6\bin\svn import c:\opt\vim\uwdist\tms svn://localhost/c/tmp/testsvn -m "initial import of stuff released as 1.12"
   svn: No repository found in 'svn://localhost/c/tmp/testsvn'

   -------------------------------------------------
   c:\opt\svn\svn-win32-1.0.6\bin\svn import c:\opt\vim\uwdist\tms svn://localhost/c/tmp/testsvn/tms -m "initial import of stuff released as 1.12"
   svn: No repository found in 'svn://localhost/c/tmp/testsvn/tms'

   -------------------------------------------------
   c:\opt\svn\svn-win32-1.0.6\bin\svn import c:\opt\vim\uwdist\tms svn://localhost/c/tmp/ -m "initial import of stuff released as 1.12
   svn: No repository found in 'svn://localhost/c/tmp'

I have tried other combinations based on starting
svnserve with the -r option (in addition to -d) but
still unable to import stuff into the repository
for svn control.

Besides looking at Revision 10061 of the html 'VC with
svn book', I tried searching the mailing list archives,
but haven't been able to solve the problem as yet.
(Also, could not even look at some of the search
results because of "Servlet error" "Fatal error"
"Message not available: <digits>" "The version and
build number 2.6.0.215.6".

In the past, I have used cvs at work under linux
I would like a version control system for my private
projects at home, and so am trying out svn.
Please help with getting started using svn.

Thanks,

--Suresh
