The answer is, it depends. If you are going to be the only one accessing the repository, then no. You can just create a repository on your location machine and access it from there. You can also run svnserver on a work station to allow remote PCs access to it.

Once again, SVN uses an optimistic locking scenario rather than pessimistic. This works very well for text based files. Not so much for binaries... although svn can be used to version binary files, the merging doesn't really work out.
