svn co gets 405 Method not allowed - how come (more importantly, what can I do about it)?

0) I installed
    a) apache_2.0.52-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi
    b) svn-1.1.3-setup.exe
    onto my Windows XP workstation.
1) I created an empty subversion repository in C:\SVN\repos (FSFS -
not Berkeley DB)
2) I configured Apache to access it like so:
<Location /svn>
DAV svn
SVNParentPath C:\SVN
AuthType Basic
Anonymous_NoUserID off
Anonymous_MustGiveEmail off
Anonymous_VerifyEmail off
Anonymous_LogEmail off
Anonymous atucker dchase spowers bferber cdoucette vss_migration
#AuthType SSPI
AuthName "Subversion repositories"
AuthUserFile passwd
#AuthzSVNAccessFile svnaccessfile
Require valid-user
#SSPIAuth On
#SSPIAuthoritative On
#SSPIOfferBasic On

I probably don't need the anoymous stuff - I was having issues with
At first I was using WIndows authentication; but, then for purposes of
getting the VSS2SVN script to work
to require author names (for history) but not passwords, I created a
temporary passwd file with blank passwords.
3) I *SUCCESSFULLY* converted my VSS database to SVN using VSS2SVN.pl
        (this involved many successful commits)
4) Now, I'm attempting to get a fresh working directory and I'm
unable to do that:
C:\MySVNwd>svn co http://localhost:8080/SVN/repos/
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/SVN/repos'
svn: PROPFIND of '/SVN/repos': 405 Method Not Allowed
Please tell me how to get this working.
p.s. Please CC me directly on any replies as I don't believe I was
successful in my attempt to join this mailing list.
