Yes. This is my Apache config:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerName svn.robinbowes.com
     ServerAdmin robin-svn@robinbowes.com

     ErrorLog logs/svn.robinbowes.com-error_log
     CustomLog logs/svn.robinbowes.com-access_log combined

     DocumentRoot /home/svn/
     <Directory /home/svn/>
       Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
       AllowOverride all
       Allow from all
       Order allow,deny

     <Location /svn>
       DAV svn
       # any "/svn/foo" URL will map to a repository /home/svn/foo
       SVNParentPath /home/svn
       AuthType Basic
       AuthName "Subversion repository"
       AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
         Require valid-user

I am hoping to be able to set this up so that I can see a list of all my
projects at http://svn.robinbowes.com, with each project accessible at
http://svn.robinbowes.com/project1, etc.

Using separate locations won't help me with that, will it?

If a man speaks in a forest,
