Specifying a start revision number for a new repository

I'm developing and hosting an open source project
(treegraph.bioinfweb.info) and want to start using subversion to
manage the source codes (including a webinterface with sventon).
Until now the source codes revisions were organized manually without
any version controol system in formof f backups and the current
revision is 197. I have already set up a svn server with an empty
repository and want the revision numbers in svn to start with 198,
when uploading my source codes there, to avoid having different
revision numbers in svn and the download section of the website.
Is there any way to set an initial revision number when doing the
first import to svn?

I have not found any information on that, and the only idea I have
until now is to make 197 more or less senseless commits before
committing the first real change to my source codes. I would really
appreciate if anyone known a more elegant (and faster) way of doing

Thanks a lot,
