This is more a Subversion mailing list question than TortoiseSVN,
but using a server (svnserve or apache mod) provides better security
(user/path restrictions) and repository access control (easier to stop
a service for maintenance than kill a network file share), and I think
most folks would recommend using a server.

Unless you have Apache up and running already, easiest to get
going is svnserve.
