Don't forget to set a DocumentRoot. I use "DocumentRoot /var/empty" but you may want to set up a new directory to be this vhost's document root, so you can add things like a favicon.ico, xslt stylesheets, etc.

And presumably the repository's name is not "error"? I'm not sure why this is happening, but trying to put a repository at the root of a vhost is often problematic for a variety of reasons. I mean it works for me, but many others have reported problems. I have no slash at the end of my SVNParentPath definition and you do, so maybe that's part of it. If you can't resolve the problem, consider trying to place the repositories in a subdirectory of the webspace, e.g. "<Location /svn>", and see if that clears up the error.
