Why are you asking a question about the Linux svn client on the TSVN
(which doesn't run on Linux) list in the first place?

As I understand it, you're dual-booting on one PC between Linux and
Windows, with a shared FAT32 partition. In Linux, you are having
trouble checking out, using the Linux svn client, to the FAT32
partition because FAT32 is among the worst filesystems known to man
and doesn't support permissions. How is this a TSVN issue at all? Am
I missing something?
