That's why I thought of installing it on a USB key. The WC will be on a drive always mapped to the same letter that is actually my personal space on a common (Unix I think) server.

Huh? The answer to "how do I use Subversion on a USB drive?" is "use git or
Mercurial"? That's kinda odd, plus he'd still have the same problem: using
either of those programs from a usb drive.

To answer the original question, if you are using a properly compiled and linked
Subversion client, such as the command line client, you shouldn't have any
problem running it from a USB drive. Are you running on Windows or *nix?
