What error do you get? What OS, SVN version? What did you do? Did
you read the book on setting up an svnserve processes?

Does your svnserve process point to an directory HOLDING repositories
or to a repository? If the later, does the repository exist? If the
former, then you need a repository name in the URL:
svn://localhost/repo/trunk (where repo is the repository name and
must exist)

Do you get prompted for a username?

If you get an SVN Authorization failure, you probably did not
configure the svnserve.conf file correctly: you must 1) enable writes
and the passwd file; OR enable and configure the authz.
