Are you able to access any other file in this manner (UNC path, mapped
drive, etc.)? If so, then probably. If not, then no.

Depending on how you access this server, you might have issues with
your working copy due to a change in IP, drive letter, or path on the
"server" to the repository. If you use a proper SVN server, you
abstract this from the working copy and make moving the server or the
repository on the server much simpler and safer.
