can't "svnadmin load"

I am having all kinds of issues trying to import a dump from
We've been using them, but now would like to move the subversion in-house.

root_at_bugs:/tmp# svnadmin load help
svnadmin: Can't open file 'help/format': No such file or directory

root_at_bugs:/tmp# svnadmin load --force-uuid /var/local/svn/svn.mycompany.com
< web.svn
svnadmin: Valid UTF-8 data
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: 96 2d 66 6f)

root_at_bugs:/tmp# svnadmin load /var/local/svn/svn.mycompany.com < web.svn

<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 1
svnadmin: File already exists: filesystem
'/var/local/svn/svn.mycompany.com/db', transaction '2-1', path 'branches'
     * adding path : branches ...root_at_bugs:/tmp#

I tried to delete the 'db' directory and that didn't work either:
svnadmin: Can't open file '/var/local/svn/svn.mycompany.com/db/DB_CONFIG':
No such file or directory

I tried to point it right at the db and that failed too.
# svnadmin load /var/local/svn/svn.mycompany.com/db < web.svn
svnadmin: Expected repository format '3' or '5'; found format '2'

What am I doing wrong? This shouldn't be so difficult.
