IIRC the book is relatively detailed on this issue:
You must create all paths and repositores before using them and make sure
the access rights are correctly set so the webserver can access them.
Also a look into the log-files and the SVN-FAQ will help ;-)

So, for you this will be like:

# mkdir -p /home/svnroot
# svnadmin create /home/svnroot
# chown -R <user-the-webserver-runs-as> /home/svnroot

Then start apache.

You might want to look at similar http problems in the archive, too.
