It all has to do with what "-r" parameter you give to svnserve when
you start it. All your repositories must be inside that path. If you
want all your repositories on D drive, then, I believe, give "-r D:
\path\to\repositories" to svnserve. Or are you saying you want some
repositories on D drive and some to stay on C drive? If so, on Linux,
you could use symlinks to get them all to appear to be in the same
place (and then point "-r" at that place) but on Windows I don't know.
