I might be wrong here, but I think you want to set up Subversion (0.23?)
using mod_dav_svn on Apache. These are the things I would check to get
it working:

1. Do you have Apache working (just as a normal webserver) on Windows?

2. Do you have a repository (or repositories) on the Apache machine that
you can access locally (with the file:// scheme)?

3. If yes to both, what I would try is copy mod_dav_svn.so into the
Apache/modules directory, add a few lines to Apache/conf/httpd.conf, and
restart Apache.

I had some trouble getting the module to work properly, but it should be
quite easy now if you have compatible Subversion and Apache versions.
Mine is working nicely with 0.23 on httpd 2.0.45.

The lines from my httpd.conf file are (I haven't edited them in any way,
so I am baring my soul here...):

     # Load Subversion.
     LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
     <IfModule mod_dav_svn.c>
     <Location /repos/>
         DAV svn
         SVNPath "E:/svn/"
         SVNReposName "Edmund's Subversion Repository"
         Order deny,allow
         Deny from all
         Allow from chrysophylax chrysophylax.cjb.net

     <Location /repos-xml/>
         DAV svn
         SVNPath "E:/svn/"
         SVNReposName "Edmund's Subversion Repository - XML View"
         Order deny,allow
         Deny from all
         Allow from chrysophylax chrysophylax.cjb.net
         SVNIndexXSLT /svnindex.xsl

Good luck with getting it to work.
