http protocol appears to fail with svn client

I'm a complete newbie with Subversion but have heard so many good
things about it I thought this might be a good time to switch from CVS.
However, while trying to set up a new repository and opening up access
to it through WebDAV, I just can't seem to get it working.

svn import -m "Initial Import" . http://(domain name

returns the following error

svn: MKCOL of
vendors': 500 Internal Server Error (http://domain name obfuscated)

The Apache error log contains the following lines:

[Tue Aug 16 00:07:11 2005] [error] [client] The locks
could not be queried for verification against a possible "If:" header.
[500, #0]
[Tue Aug 16 00:07:11 2005] [error] [client] (2)No such
file or directory: Path is not accessible. [403, #405]

All permissions on the repository are set to the same user/group as

I am able to import the project using the file:// protocol and can view
its contents via a web browser but am unable to use the http://
protocol with the svn client.

Here is the configuration in httpd.conf

     <Location /svn/clevernet_web>
         DAV svn
         SVNPath /var/www/svn/clevernet_web

         AuthType Basic
         AuthName "Subversion Repository"
         AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
         Require valid-user

I am able to authenticate via http without trouble (I set up the
svn-auth-file using htpasswd and it works fine).

BTW, I had NO luck using the SVNParentPath (but then again, I don't
really understand what it means, how it differs from SVNPath)

If there is any additional information you need to lend a hand, please
let me know and I'll send what I can.

SVN version: svn, version 1.2.1 (r15230)
The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
   - handles 'http' scheme
   - handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
   - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
   - handles 'file' scheme

Apache version: 2.0.52

Thanks in advance and I HOPE I can get this up and running!
