I'd suggest using 'svnadmin dump' on your linux repository, then create your
windows repository and use 'svnadmin load' to, well, load it in.
This way you also get a backup of your repo.

I use 'svnadmin dump' to create backups of my repo and then zip them up,
it's handy in case, like today, a repo is corrupted it only took me a liitle
while to load the backup.

NB I hope this gets through as I was migrated from my old email address at
zero notice, so it may need Stefan to (re)aprove me.
