svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/repos/myfiles/trunk
svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/repos/myfiles/branches
svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/repos/myfiles/tags

Or even better like this:

svn mkdir file:///srv/svn/repos/myfiles/{trunk,branches,tags}

Works on Unix-like systems under bash or tcsh.

(this will give only one revision bump instead of 3).

Try this method:

cd working-copy
svn co file:///srv/svn/repos/myfiles/trunk
svn add *
svn ci

Hope this helps,
