This is a really bad idea. There are locking issues with some network
filesystem protocols which could leave your repository in a bad state.
Also, this requires that all users have full access to the entire
repository database, which significantly increases the changes of
someone accidentally (or maliciously) corrupting the repository - or
deleting it altogether!

Even so, because you're dealing with multiple users, you really ought
to be using a real Subversion server, not a file:/// share.
