svn: Authorization Failed

I am trying to get a hang of subversion and am trying to commit my working
copy to the repository. I am working on the comp that subversion and
svnserve are on and I have root access and all of that stuff. When I
checkout a working copy this is how it goes:

>>>svn checkout svn://localhost/root/svn/repos
>A repos/trunk
>A repos/trunk/svn_demo.cpp
>A repos/branches
>A repos/tags
Checked out revision 4.

All is well and fine and I go edit svn_demo.cpp and then when I go to commit
that to the repository this is what I get:

>>>svn commit -m "comment"
>svn: Authorization failed

The only time that I can actually commit something is when I checkout the
files using:
>>>svn checkout file:///root/svn/repos

I have given anon-users write permissions and I still get the problem.

Also I am trying to do the same thing but over a network so I do:
>>>svn checkout svn://**IP**/root/svn/repos
and it gives me all the files and such but when I go to commit my working
copy back into the repository I get the same error:
>svn: Authorization failed

I see absolutely no reason why it does this and I am really hoping someone
can help me with this. I need the repository running ASAP so I can get
started on a project at work.
