I think I ruined my repository. What do I do now?

I tried to add a new project into the repository by following the
Quick Start guide in the manual. I did the same things (or so I
thought) as I did for the first project, but instead of saying
'Committed revision 1.' it said 'svn: File already exists: filesystem
'/home/cornelious/programs/db', transaction 'a', path 'trunk''.

Here are the steps I took: (working from my home directory)

cd tmp
mkdir mymoney
cd mymoney
mkdir branches
mkdir tags
mkdir trunk
cd ~
svn import tmp/mymoney file:///home/chris/programs -m "initial import"

Then the output was that funky thing saying the directory already existed.

So then for shits and giggles I went into my public_html directory and
tried a checkout on that project. And when I did that it spit back my
ORIGINAL project (the one I made a few months ago) and it's files.

What the hell did I do wrong and how can I fix it?

I also tried to list the projects in my repository but that doesn't
seem to work right either. I found this page
http://www.abbeyworkshop.com/howto/misc/svn01/ that said to run:

svn list --verbose file:///repository_name/project

What I entered was:

svn list --verbose file:///home/chris/programs/project

I get back:

svn: URL 'file:///home/chris/programs/project' non-existent in that revision

So then I tried:

svn list --verbose file:///home/chris/programs

And get back:

      1 chris Mar 30 22:11 branches/
      6 chris Apr 02 15:53 http/
      6 chris Apr 02 15:53 shared/
      1 chris Mar 30 22:11 tags/
      8 chris Apr 16 17:43 trunk/

What?? I expected it to list my two projects.

Thank you!
