Once again, as Norbert already mentioned read the free subversion book [1], specifically the chapters about "Authentication Options" with http [2] and "Per-Directory Access Control" [3] which explain the available methods of restricting access in great detail. Probably the easiest method is to use an AuthzSVNAccessFile, which is explained in the section "Per-Directory Access Control". If you have any specific questions concerning this setup, feel free to come back to the list.

regards
