Using tortoise with network share repository

I've been reading through the subversion book and the tortoise help
files and I'm still quite confused about the different network protocols
versus file protocols.

I've been testing tortoise with a local repository in preparation for
putting our main development server under source control.

My local efforts work fine and tortoise seems to be using the file
protocol automatically.

Our dev server is on the LAN so can I simply install subversion on the
server and continue to use tortoise "as is": it's not a mapped drive at
the moment (but could be) but I can navigate there by the normal means.

I even tried setting up a repository on the server and it worked fine
even though subversion isn't installed there: is this because subversion
is working on my local machine or just that tortoise doesn't need it?

Also, I've read through the stuff about authentication, etc and I think
that for my situation we only need to know who the author of a change
was and not to force them to enter a password, etc.

-Somehow, tortoise seems to have picked up my name automatically as the
author for all commits I have been making, but I haven't configured
anything to tell it that: how does it "know" + will it work ok when I've
got different users accessing the repository from their machines (They
will all have local workspaces except for one who for technical reasons
will need his own workspace on the server)?

I suppose what I'm working up to is whether I need to set up a server
(either Apache or svnserve) or if I can just install tortoise on each
local machine.

Sorry, that's about 3 questions in one!

Thanks in advance.
