If you downloaded a 1.1.x version of subversion(*), you should be able
to choose fsfs.

BDB is the default type if the BDB libraries were installed where
subversion was compiled.

On my home box, I don't have the BDB libraries, therefore fsfs is
created by svnadmin by default.

In any case, take a look at the output of: "svnadmin help create" You
should have an option called fs-type. Read it's description.

Whichever type you decide you want your repositories to be, just
remember to always specify that when creating them.
