problems with svnserve and SVNService on WinXP SP2

I have just downloaded Subversion (v.1.3.2) onto my WinXP SP2 and have
one question and one problem, possibly connected:

When I run "svnserve -d -r ...", it leaves the cmd.exe open, making it
rather impractical to run it all the time. Is this a normal behaviour?

I then tried to make svnserve run as a service using two different
versions of SVNService, but neither worked (even though both claimed to
have installed the service):
- SVNService from http://clanlib.org/~mbn/svnservice/ installs the
service, but does not start it. When I try to start it manually, I get a
message "The SVNService on Local Computer started and stopped. Some
services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the
Performance Logs and Alert Services."
- SVNServiceDT from
behaves similarly (i.e. installs but does not start), only that the
error message when trying to start it is different: "Windows could not
start the SVNService on Local Computer. For more information, review the
System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the
service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 1."
(I must admit I did not check the System Event Log, as I do not know
where to find it.)
- In both cases, when I look at the properties of the services using
Administrative Tools->Services, the "Start parameters" box is empty.

Anybody has an idea what has gone wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.
