Server died. Any advice on getting our repository back again?

We were running subversion on a windows 2003 server and had a hardware
failure. Being the useless administrator that I am I can't remember
which version of subversion we were running.

I have managed to save all the data from the hard-drive and have a copy
of the old berkerly db repository. Also, the clients have copies of
their repositories.

Thinking I was being clever I installed the latest version of subversion
and copied the old repository on to my new server build and hey presto,
it all seemed to working fine until I verified the database and got the

DB_VERSION_MISMATCH: Database environment version mismatch
svnadmin: bdb: Program version 4.3 doesn't match environment version

Can anyone advise me on how to find out what version my database was
created in so I can use the dump/load procedure explained in the docs
provided or if there is a handy tool to import the old database into a
new repository without the need to install the older version of
subversion or whether my whole recovery procedure is flawed and if I
should be doing something else.
