NTFS on XP is not known as a particularly high-performance filesystem,
especially for the types of operations which Subversion does. A fast
hard drive with lots of free space (so fragmentation isn't an issue),
preferably a different drive from where your OS is hosted, works best.
I saw a huge difference when I upgraded from a 5400 RPM drive to 7200.
