Other people have replied and told you about the file permissions and
users, but I'm intrigued about why you are not using the svn protocol
when logged into your Linux box. It's obviously set up and working
because you are using it from Windows. Instead of typing:

svn import -m "Initial Import" . file:///svn/mfe/200901

you could have used

svn import -m "Initial Import" . svn://localhost/mfe/200901
