Windows/DOS command line svn won't work.

I don't have (and can't find) hardly any documentation on the Windows / DOS
command line version of svn, except for the Version Control with Subversion
book by Collins-Sussman, Fitzpatrick, and Pilato. The procedures spelled
out in that book don't seem to exactly correspond to what the Windows/DOS
command line version wants.

If I say:

C:\TargetRepo>svn checkout

... I get ...

svn: Can't create tunnel: The system cannot find the file specified.

I know the path to the repository on the server is valid because that's
exactly the path I use with TortoiseSVN every day (in fact, I
cut-and-pasted that line, from "svn+ssh" on, right into the above command
line), including about 45 minutes ago and again just now (just to rule out
something having crashed in the last 45 minutes), and it has never failed
to work.

My (remote) Subversion server (Linux - Fedora 7) is set to disallow logins
and allow access only via PuTTY key files, and Pageant is running with the
correct key file.

(Does Pageant not work with the command line version of svn? That would
probably explain things... although I would have expected an error message
that's more nearly on-point...)

Obviously I'm doing something wrong. Can any of you point it out?
