Why won't it work? If there a reason you can checkout just the folders you want?

I could be wrong, but the only way to get what you want it to allow read access to the entire repository for all users, and only restrict the ability to write to the various sub-folders.

I lost the thread and I can't seem to see your original message to see your config.

Are you allowing anon read access? If so, turning that off may get you what you want. It will force authentication for every read allowing svn to know who it doing the checkout and give the access to all folders.

Perhaps someone with more knowledge on this can jump in here.
