I think you missed the part about setting up different access methods, your
problems are well documented there. However, I'd suggest a different way of
organizing things: use svnserve. Remove all access rights to the
repositories, make them owned by the svnserve user you need to add and make
people use svn:// to access them. Simple setup and you can even give
restricted access (e.g. read only) to some people.

Whatever you do though, you need to read the book on subversion first.
