Windows / Linux version

I have a dual boot Ubuntu / XP Home system with a shared FAT partition for my data files. I'd like to check out my SVN repository to this shared partition from my server and use it in both OSes. Whenever I perform an operation (like commit) on Windows though, appearantly it converts the working copy into some Linux incompatible form, because when I boot into Ubuntu afterwards and try to do anything with the working copy I get a message about the client being too old. Obviously, I've checked that I have the most recent version on both OSes.
Is it actually possible to do this, or do I just make a checkout on my Windows disk, and one on my Linux disk, and use the remote repo to synch them? (That would work, but would be a little inefficient and won't help me when I don't have a connection to the server and want to switch OSes).
