You can use TortoiseSVN 1.1.7 which is preserved as the last version that would
run on Win98 and NT4. If you look at the compatibility matrix (hmmm, maybe that's
disappeared from our website now) you can use 1.x.x client with 1.x.x server.

1.2.x should be OK too, but I don't know if you can find that anywhere.
