Hi David,

-> For example: on the server, I enter "svnserve -d"
-> (I've also tried "svnserve -d -r h:\Subversion" and
-> svnserve -d -r \\omega\build\Subversion")
...
-> I cannot connect to Subversion from other machines with
-> "svn list svn://" followed by every combination I could think of.
 
Sounds like you need to run it as a service,
there are at least two options that work:

http://dark.clansoft.dk/~mbn/svnservice/ (custom tool)
or
http://www.firedaemon.com/ (generic tool)

svnservice is what we now use and has been running fine
for about 8 months without incident, before that firedaemon
ran without fail for over a year on our repositories.

Oh, and there's no need to turn off your firewall, just open
up port 3690 (or whatever you run if --listen-port switch used)

FWIW, we run both BDB and FSFS repositories, never had a problem
with BDB corruption, but FSFS is much faster, so we use that on
new repos, just be aware that it hasn't been around as long as BDB,
either way it's a good idea to run 'svnadmin verify' to be safe.

The other tip I'd suggest is for backups look at 'svnadmin hotcopy'
and 'svnadmin dump' (ie. don't just backup your live repositories)

peace
si
