New Installation Authentication Problem

From: Rob Wilkerson <r.d.wilkerson_at_gmail.com>

In the process of understanding what it will take to convert my office
from VSS source control to Subversion, I've just created a new svn
install on Fedora Core 4 using Apache 2.0.55. Everything looks okay
with subversion itself and I've even imported a dummy project. I seem
to be having trouble with my Apache authentication, however. I
installed TortoiseSVN on my workstation and when I try to do anything
I get prompted to enter my un/pwd, but then get a 403 (Forbidden)
error when I do so.

Here is (what I believe is) the relevant component of my httpd.conf file:
<Location /svn>
     DAV svn
     SVNParentPath /path/to/svn
     AuthType Basic
     AuthName "My Test Subversion repository"
     AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
     Require valid-user

And here is my svn-auth-file:

Is there something I'm missing here? Could the problem be in another
location that I haven't included? Or even in another file? If anyone
can offer any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it.
