We are looking to deploy two instances of subversion server to service two separate groups: one running subversion 1.4 and another subversion 1.6. I don't have much experience in installation/configuration of an svn server, so how should I do this?

If this is indeed possible, what do I need to know to get this running? Is it enough to simply install in two different directory paths and configure two services each pointing to a separate installation?

Do you have to use svnserve? It is also possible to serve SVN archives using WEBDAV on apache. – Martin Hilton Feb 22 '10 at 6:30

You will also need to make sure that they are serving on different ports. This will mean at least 1 group using a non-standard port number.
