Yes, if you want separate repositories (and separate repository
revision numbers) for each project, you would "svnadmin create" a
repository for each project:

svnadmin create /path/to/projectA
svnadmin create /path/to/projectB
svnadmin create /path/to/projectC

And you could then create the empty directory structure in each:

svn mkdir \
file:///path/to/projectA/trunk \
file:///path/to/projectA/branches \
file:///path/to/projectA/tags \
-m "Creating empty trunk / branches / tags directories in projectA"

And so on for the other projects.

If you're serving these repositories with Apache 2, then the easiest
would be to point to the directory all the repositories are in ("/
path/to" in my examples above) using the SVNParentPath directive.

The "svn import" syntax gets me too if I'm not really concentrating.
I recommend trying a few imports with different scenarios in a test
repository to assure yourself you've got the syntax right before
proceeding to the real import.
