Installing Solaris 1.1.3 on Solaris 8.5 and having issues with us ers Authentication

First things first Great product for those of you that are contributors.
My question is is there something different during the setup on a Solaris
install vs. a windows when we get down to configuring the svnserve.conf and
the password.conf files.
The installation on windows was rather simplistic compared to the Solaris
My current status is this
I have a repository up and running and have the full functionality active
when I modify the svnserve.conf to use the anonymous mode..
-- svnserve.conf --
anon-access = write
auth-access = write

However when I move forward to use the more secure way
-- svnserve.conf --
anon-access = read
auth-access = write
password-db = password.conf
-- password.conf --
testuser = testuser
The Issue is this never gets authenticated.
I see that the process is reading my svnserve.conf and password.conf but I
am at a loss to why it would not authenticate as it did in windows.
Is there a step that is different when dealing with svnserve.conf and
password.conf in Solaris ?
Are there any other configuration setting that I need to change ? I saw one
thread that talk about placing the encrypted password in the password.conf
file and have subversion use some password validation utility. I suspect if
this is enabled by the default settings then I would never get authenticated
Any thoughts out there ? Your help is very much appreciated.
