Correct you run svnserve on the linux box and all XP clients talk to
the server rather than accessing the repositories directly. You want
to prevent your clients accessing the repositories directly so you
should make sure that the directory holding the repositories is *not*
a network share, or you block access using linux permissions.

Once you have svnserve running and the file:// access is blocked then
everyone needs to use TSVN->relocate on their working copies to use
the new URLs. Assuming you setup svnserve such that its svnparentpath
is the directory containing all your repositories, your URLs will
change from something like
file://server/svnshare/repos1/path to svn://server/repos1/path

I suggest that you retain shared access while you test that svnserve
is working, to avoid getting pelted with rotten tomatoes by your
co-workers :-) From any XP client use the repobrowser to look at your
svn:// URL. If you can see the repository content then all should be
