Error in the Appendix A of the SVN Book

Failure in the instructions of the quickstart. Tested on a mac G5
under OS X 10.5.4.
Text from pg 325 and from
Subversion stores all versioned data in a central repository. To
begin, create a new repository:
$ svnadmin create /path/to/repos
$ ls /path/to/repos
The "svnadmin create /path/to/repos" command will fail if that
directory does not already exist. This took me forever to find out.
The book needs an explanation of what to do if the create command fails.
