There are two possible causes i know off:

1. wrong subversion version, 0.28 and 0.29 work and 
   can be downloaded from


2. a (transparent) http-proxy which is not able to 
   proxy WEBDAV requests.  In this case pointing your 
   browser to http://codespeak.net:8080/svn/... 
   might help. 

I guess it's 1. in your case.
