Question about adding indivual files to subversion

I want to add (import..?) an individual file to my subversion project and I'm using the rapidsvn client on linux.

I tried going to Repository->Import which then brings up the Import dialog. I then specify "File" for the Path Type, put in the appropriate Repository URL for the subversion folder I want to add the file to, and then in the Path field, I put in the path to the source file on my hard drive.

When I click ok I get the following error message:

Error while performing action: Path '' already exists
