can't create directory '/usr/local/svnrepos...'

I've recently set up a new server and want to move al my cvs projects over
to subversion. I've managed to import a test project (locally) and when I
went to try to commit a change to a file (locally) I got the following
error:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't create directory '/usr/local/svnrepos/db/transactions/1-1.txn':
Permission denied
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/usr/home/hamannj/geo541/svn-commit.tmp'

I also get a similar error when trying to commit over a network (using
tortise) and can't figure out what to do. I've changed the permissions on
the repos to root to see if that might solve the problem. it didn't.

I'm accessing the repos using https (apache+mod_ssl) and can't seem to be
able to update/commit over the network. I can update locally. When I attempt
to update/commit over the network, I get errors like:

Error Commit failed (details follow):
Error Can't create directory '/usr/local/svnrepos/db/transactions/1-1.txn':
Error Permission denied

I'm not really sure which permissions I need to change...
chmod/chgrp/chown/svnadmin?

help?
Jeff.
