If you create your Subversion repository at /srv/svn/repos1
then SVNPath should read /srv/svn/repos1 -- simple as that.

If you create your Subversion repository at C:\svn\repos
then SVNPath should read C:\svn\repos -- if you're on Windows.

A Location directive really just tells Apache how to treat
requests that come in for certain locations. In your
example above (quoted from the book?), it simply means
that requests for <http://yourserver/repos/> should
be directed to the SVN repository in the directory
"/absolute/path/to/repository".

Clearer? I hope so.
