SVN PROPFIND of '/': 405 Method Not Allowed


Hi, I’ve posted this in Begginer’s section as well, but I thought it would be a good idea to post it here as well.
I have an account on dreamhost. I logged in, have been directioned to my home directory. I have, and I’ve set up a repository in the svn directory from my home directory. All ok. Next thing I want to do is to check out on my local machine a copy of what is in the repository (like nothing right now)

when trying to check out from I get this error:

svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/'
svn: PROPFIND of ‘/’: 405 Method Not Allowed (

Please give me some ideas of what to do in order ot be able to check out. Please help!
Thank you !
