This really isn't a TortoiseSVN issue, but rather a subversion
issue.... TortoiseSVN just uses the subversion libraries to do
the work.

You failed (I think) to mention how you are accessing your
repository? svn, svn+ssh, http, https ?

Regardless, my suggest would be to tar.bz2 your sources,
move them to the linux box host subversion, and use
the command line tools to do the import directly on
the box, rather than sending all the data (and all the overhead
of SMB and latency, etc., etc.) across your LAN twice.
