Subversion on RHEL4 in VMware

I have a very odd problem which I think is ore related to Apache than Subversion. But because I know a lot of people use Apache to serve their repositories I hope someone can help me. I'm using Subversion 1.4.4 and Apache 2.0.

I have a RHEL4 virtual machine on VMware. I created a new virtual disk and mounted it on /data. If I create the repository on this new disk I cannot create a working copy using http:// (but I can using file://). The error I get is "Could not open the requested SVN filesystem". If the repository is created in another directory on the original disk, e.g. /data1, everything works fine.

I googled the error and there were a lot of results but all pointing to the same problem: permissions. I changed them all to 777 but that didn't solve the issue.

Does anybody have an idea? I start thinking it may be something related to how I mount the new disk, but it's pretty standard, like

/dev/sdb1 /data ext3 defaults 1 2

The Apache configuration is the minimum

<Location /giulio>
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /data/giulio

I can of course provide more information, just ask.
