If you're running XP with SP2 you might be blocked by the firewall.
svnserve uses port 3690 by default, as described in the SVNbook
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s03.html).
svnserve -d works for me on Win2k.

Note that if you specify a root directory on a remote mount as in
svnserve -d -r \\omega\build\Subversion
you must not use BDB storage.
