Sorry Bruce... didn't mean to reply directly to you. Here's the message
for the list.

What's the layout of the directories here?  If it's:
  /svnroot
    |--- repo1/
    |--- repo2/

then you'll want SVNParentPath instead of SVNPath.  In that case your URLs
would look like:
  http://server.name/svntest2/repo1

This isn't a berkeley problem... it's simply not pointed to an actual
repository.  Getting SVNPath or SVNParentPath pointed to the correct
location will help fix your problem.  As a side note, make sure you get
the permissions right.  You'll need to repository to be owned by the
apache user in order for it to work correctly.
