Security problems setting up Subversion

Sorry to bother you guys, but I could not find any information on this type
of problem. I am running Subversion on XP Pro and accessing it from a
remote XP pro PC using TortoiseSVN (Explorer Shell App.).

Svnserve.exe is set up to run as a service using srvany.exe (Win2k Res Kit).
I have one repository and I changed the svnserve.conf file to turn off
anonymous access and I added a password file in the same directory as the
svnserve.conf file and put a user in it. I tested running the service with
the working directory pointing to the repository directory and then to the
software install directory with no luck. It seams as though the server
can't find the svnserve.conf file and is running in read-only mode as a
default. The server is being started with the following command line:
"svnserve -d -r C:\_SVN\Repository" , I also tested simply running
Svnserve.exe from the command prompt with the same results.

Everything works fine except that the client is operating in a read only
mode and never gets prompted for id and password..

I must be doing something very stupid but I just don't see it. I can
imagine everyone is very busy with real problems but I would appreciate some
help on this if you can spare some time for me.

Thank you in advance,

Michael T.
