If the OS is the same you can simply copy the repository folders
complete from one to another. If the OS is different you would need to
use svnadmin (part of the subversion distribution, not TSVN) to dump
the old repo to a text file, copy that text file to the new PC and do
an svnadmin load into a fresh repository on the new PC.

If the repository was created with an old version of subversion/TSVN
then you might benefit from a dump/load anyway in order to get the
repository format into a newer version.
