Hi Patrick,
Thank you so much for your reply.
My coworker, Jim Klo, was finally able to figure out the problem, and I
wanted to let you know, so others can follow this to fix the problem.

I found this little ³How to² out there on the internet:

1. when running Œssh-keygen ­dı donıt provide a passphrase, it svnX didnıt
like that for some reason.
2. when you generate the keys it creates two files ~/.ssh/id_dsa and
~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub, you will want to copy that file over to the svn server.
You can do this by using a program called scp:
> 1. scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa yourlogin@xenon:~/
> 2. enter your password that IT gave you for svn
3. next you will ssh to xenon and add the files into a keyring. To do this
do the following:
> 1. ssh yourlogin@xenon
> 2. enter your password
> 3. mkdir ~/.ssh
> 4. touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
> 5. chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
> 6. cat ~/id_dsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
> 7. rm ­f ~/id_dsa.pub
> 8. exit
4. now test the configuration by doing the following:
> 1. ssh yourlogin@server
> 2. if you donıt get prompted for a password, then everything is working, type
> Œexitı at the prompt.
5. launch svnX, when adding a repository, for the repository location use
something like:
> 1. svn+ssh://yourlogin@server/folder
> 2. donıt enter your name or password !
> 3. open the repository, you might get a window that says svn error with no
> details, I think this is ok, just dismiss. The repository should load and you

Iım not sure if you need SSHKeychain or not on OS X 10.4.7, however it wonıt
