TortoiseSVN and Subversion Authorization

Hi. I really home someone can help me.

I installed SVN on a clean (freshly reformatted) windows 2000 server.
I am not running Apache.

I can do anything I want so long as I do not require authorization
(anon-access=write).

I want to setup authorization so here's what I did.

I have the following entries in svnserve.conf for my respository:

[general]
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
authz-db = authz
# realm = My First Repository

I setup users in passwd as follows

[users]
# harry = harryssecret
# sally = sallyssecret
foo = bar
rocks = shoals

Finally, my authz file looks like this:

[groups]
# harry_and_sally = harry,sally
developers = foo,rocks

[/AllRepos/RepoTest]
@developers = rw
* =

c:/AllRepos/RepoTest is the root of this repository

When I access the repository using the browser in TortoiseSVN,
it asks me for the user name and password and then tells me
"Error * Authorization Failed". And yes, I am sure I put in
the right password.

I tried commenting out the folder and that didn't work. I
tried just using the Repository: section and that didn't work.

I am stumped. I am sure I missing something simple but I can't
figure out what it is. Any ideas?
