Copying repository to working repository on another machine?

Hi All,

I have a repository on one WinXP SP2 machine and want to copy it to another
machine (same config) and begin using the repository on that second machine,
instead of the first.

Having checked the documentation, I was under the impression this would work
(subversion 1.2.3 on both machines):

On new machine (after installing subversion):

svnadmin create c:\website\project

On old machine:

svnadmin dump c:\website\project > c:\website_project_back.txt

Copy website_project_back.txt (which is about 80mb in size) to new machine.

On new machine:

svnadmin load c:\website\project < c:\website_project_back.txt

I've followed all of these steps. When performing the load process on the
new machine I see a scrolling window of revisions, text about starting new
transaction, editing and adding paths etc. However, when the load is
finished, c:\website\project on the new machine doesn't have any of the
files that were contained in the c:\website\project repository on the old

Can anyone give me advice on how to make this happen properly? I've Googled
on the topic, but I think I must be making some fundamental error of

Much warmth,
