contains unsupported hostname msg when importing

Hey,

            I am new to subversion and I have only used cvs a little in
the past so sorry if the answer to my question is obvious. I am using
Win XP and I am working from the command line. I have read the first
two chapters in the book and I am trying to get through the Quick Start
part. This is what I have done so far:

 

I first created a \path\to directory in a Subversion folder on my C:
drive (note: The Quick Start page in the book does not say to do this,
but it needs to be done, so it might be a good idea to add that step to
the book)

 

I then typed:

C:\...\Subversion> svnadmin create .\path\to\repos

 

I then created the directories (tmp\project\branches, tmp\project\trunk,
tmp\project\tags) and files that were suggested by the Quick Start.

 

The problem happens when I type this:

 

C:\...\Subversion>svn import .\tmp\project file://./path/to/repos -m
"initial import"

 

I get this back:

 

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

svn: Local URL 'file://./path/to/repos' contains unsupported hostname

 

Again, I apologize if this is an obvious question. I have tried many
ways to type that command but nothing seems to work.

 

Thanks,

Lee
