SVN botheration...

I'm trying to persuade SVN to run on my FC8 PC so that I can keep my laptop codebase upto date easily so I can do some coding on that in front of TV...save the Mrs getting upset I spend all my time coding in the other room!

I'd hate to try this on Windows, this sort f thing is where Linux excels, but....

I've tried to follow instructions from here:
http://www.botsko.net/blog/2007/05/...on-fedora-core/

With some changes, but using the commands he gives.

When I browse to where I expected to see my repository (http://localhost:3690/svn/trunk) I get some text that suggests SVN is there and alive:
( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS ) ( edit-pipeline svndiff1 absent-entries ) ) )

Now when I try to access SVN from Eclipse to do an import into SVN of existing project code I was expecting some authentication error message (I can't remember where SVN users are specified in Eclipse for connections), but instead get:
Error while creating module: org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND of '/trunk': could not read status line: connection was closed by server (http://localhost:3690)

Is that error about user credentials failing authentication or have I not set something up correctly?

Can anyone point me at any other decent tutorials on getting SVN working (with notes on Eclipse would be good ).
