svnserve -r windows svn url help

My brother and I are new to subversion and are trying to serve multiple
repositories under a single folder name, namely C:\SVNRepository. For
testing purposes, we created 2 repositories, "C:\SVNRespository\Web" and
"C:\SVNRepository\JMH". He imported some code into the Web repository,
using the folder name "Test". He can check it out fine, on his machine,
using an absolute path.

For my purposes, we created a simple batch file on his desktop that runs
"svnserve -d -r C:\SVNRespository".

He opened the 3690 port on his router so I could access it from my PC at

I tried to use an svn url, such as svn://bropc.generic.com/Web and I get a
message that there is no repository at that location. However, I can open a
telnet session to his url on port 3690 fine, so I know the port is opened.

So, we made another folder, C:\SVNTest, and made it an SVN respository, and
changed the svnserve to look at this respository directly and it worked

My question, shouldn't svnserve be able to look at the root respository
C:\SVNRespository, and I be able to access the Web respository through an
svn url as stated above?
