Thanks Chris, I appreciate the link, I'm still on chapter 2. Strange it
describes creating a repository AFTER it explains properties and
commands like diff.

I read that link you posted but now I am confused about hooks. I see
the hook directory get created when I create a repository locally. But
there isn't any such directory in the repository created on a server
(VisualSVN). I searched through the book using the keyword "hooks" and
couldn't find any clue.

1) Can hooks be used on a non-local repository?
2) I read somewhere that a directory repository structure is not
recommended for multi-user environments. Is this true?
3) If #2 is true then is it also true that "svnadmin create" is for
single users ONLY?

You don't.

It is impossible to create a repository remotely.

Read the book on repository creation:

svnadmin is a server side utility to create a repository within the
local filesystem.
