Subversion and Subclipse Troubles

Expert 100+
P: 938

While I know this is not strictly a Java issue I thought this would be the place to post as I know a lot of Java developers use Eclipse and most likely use SVN and Subclipse.

First up here's the error message I receive:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.   RA layer request failed
  2. svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request for ''
Now for the details.
Server: Windows 2003, Apache 2.2, Subversion 1.6 and Tortoise SVN

Client (my laptop)
Vista, Eclipse3.4.2 Ganymede

On the server there is a Subversion repository within the svn folder of the c drive. This has been set up succesfully and I have imported the relevant source code into this.

In Eclipse I use the Subversion perspective and follow the add repository. Providing the URL I am then asked for the username and password which is according to my set up. With that provided I am met with the error listed above, and hereagain for clarity:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.clientException: RA Layer request failed
  2. svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request for ''
  3. ''
  5. Keep location anyway?
If I say 'Yes' then the location is listed in the repository explorer but on trying to access I am given the message:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Folder '' does not exist remotely
I have been pulling my hair out trying to set up Subversion and Subclipse for 3 days now and thought after much Googling and ranting I should just ask for help.

Please help me, stave off my impending baldness and point me in the right direction.

Many thanks
