svnserv - Authentication failed on windows

From: David Croxford <dcroxford_at_paciolan.com>

Setting up subversion for the first time on a windows 2000 server. I
uncommented the appropriate lines in svnserv.conf and only changed 1
value: realm = QA Repository

The repository will live directly on the D drive, D:\QA\


I added my name to the authz file:


david = rw

I tried [D:\QA\] as well...and got the same result...so I'm thinking
either will work.


I added my name to the passwd file:


david = password


I'm using tortoise and when I try to do a checkout I get the window
asking me for my username and password, I assume it's reading the right
files because the authentication window has "QA Repository" on it...and
it gets that from the realm in svnserv.conf. So, when I enter the
username/password that I setup I get a new window that has "Error
Authentication failed" and I can't figure out why this is failing.


Any help would be appreciated,
