   It took me two tries to get it right because the first time I used the
--parent option with mkdir and that removed the original source directories
for which I was trying to create svn repositories.

   After copying the two source directories from the backup drive I first
created each project's root directory (using 'svn mkdir file:///....'), then
adding the subdirectories of branches/, tags/, and /trunk. That left the
original project directories in place.

   Importing each project to the respective repository directory, removing
the original project files, then checking out each trunk worked just fine.

Thanks again for clarifying,
