I wonder if a zip disk is 1) big enough 2) fast enough 3) reliable
enough (should go as first question perhaps) to hold your repos. Or
a copy of it. Of course this assumes that you are the only one ever
accessing the repos. The other option would be about what you are
currently doing: keep a working copy on the zip disk, work on it on
the disconnected machine, later back at the networked box
(update and) commit your stuff. If you need/want to keep specific
changes in different commits, well, then this is not possible. Or
with manual work only: in TortoiseSVN e.g. you can select which
files go into a commit.

Dunno if this is of any help for you.
