I think you may have confused some things. What do you mean by
"repository root"? Do you mean "a directory I created with my
operating system's mkdir command and in which I will create various
different repositories," or did you mean "a repository I created with
svnadmin create"?

If the former, then using svnadmin create to create repositories
under it is just fine, and each repository is a completely separate
entity, so if you are seeing that error, then you are doing something
wrong, and it would help us to help you if you would send us a
transcript of the commands you executed, both to create the setup on
the server, and to access it from the client.

If the latter, then you should not be using svnadmin create; you
should be using svn mkdir to create directories inside the repository.
