You can't. You can either rename the files (in the repository) so
that they are legal under Windows, or don't check out that path under

With SVN 1.5, you could possibly put them in a subdirectory and use
the sparse checkout feature to skip that directory.

A cleaner, more compatible solution, would be to rename the files (in
the repository) to a format supported under all OSes and then have a
script (one for each OS you use) that renames the template (OS
independent files) for each user. Of course, if you could just leave
them OS independent, that would probably be best.
