SVN will run very well on a Windows NT platform: NT4/2000/XP.
It does not run on Win9X due to lack of locking facilities.

TSVN is only a client. You need to use SVN as the server. You may also
need the Apache web server, but you can use SVN's built in protocol
instead. The SVN book and the TSVN manual both tell you about the
options you have here.

Chapter 3 of the TSVN manual gives a lot of information about setting up
a server, including how to control user access rights.

Subversion/TSVN is very good for remote access. The TSVN server is in
the USA (I think). I live in UK and access it via my standard dial-up
internet connection. 56K is a bit slow for large files, but everything
works OK. Subversion is particularly good for remote working because it
stores 'pristine' copies of every file on your hard disk. That means you
can see the changes you have made without contacting the server.

The subversion book <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/> also gives lots of
information about how subversion works.

There is more comparison info here
