Hi Andy,

I have imported the directories in smaller portions and this worked
out. Also, I have decided to not import my foto's and mp3's in the
repo, because these files do seldom change.

After some experimenting with RapidSVN (Linux) and Versions (Mac OSX)
I now have a working setup.

I am now going to assign a replicated repository, that can serve as an
off-site backup.
