can't create directory: permissiosn denied

I am unable to get subversion to work correctly, I am able to create the
repository with svnadmin create /svn and am able to view the repository
(although empty) from a web browser. Currently all apache
authentication on the server is disabled. When I try to create a new
folder using a client (any client) such as TortoiseSVN I am able to view
the repository just fine but I get the following error when creating the
folder "Can't create directory '/svn/db/transactions/0-1.txn':
Permission denied". I will only be using the httpd to interact with the
repository database. This is most likely a fs permission problem but I
have been unable to get through it.


Any recommendations are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
