Subversion can't fix something the OS/filesystem doesn't support. On
Windows, you simply can't have two different files if their name only
differs in case.

You can remove one of those files or rename it. But you have to do it
directly on the server using the repo browser (you can't check out a
working copy because you get the error).

Also, see this FAQ:

To avoid such problems in the future, you can install a hook script on
the server which would reject a commit which would lead to such a
situation. You can find the script here:
