Newbie advice needed - setting up under Windows XP

I'm looking for advice on setting up my repositories under XP. I've
been following the traffic on this list for most of this week and have
seen a lot of discussion about permissions under *nix. I couldn't find
any real recommendations on setting up the repos in XP that will keep me
from boxing myself into a corner.

I'm a lone developer running under XP. I am hoping to track my
Dreamweaver files on this machine, and later some web files and C++
source code from two other machines. I have experience with SourceSafe
in the past as a user and light admin work. I've used CVS a very little
as a user with a SourceForge project I have. I'm actually new to XP, so
I'm still learning to live life when I'm not necessarily logged in with
complete control.

I've downloaded and installed Subversion 1.0.0 and TortioseSVN 1.0.0.
I've read chapters 5 and 6 of The Book. I've been following this
mailing list for most of this week. I've checked the archive for a
coupla months back and googled around for over an hour.

I'm not asking about the actual commands to create and access the
repos. The docs are adequate for that. I need advice on the higher
level stuff, like: Does it make sense to create my repos under
Documents and Settings\All Users? Or, should I put them outside that
area and hotbackup or dump into that tree for backup purposes? Do I
have to worry about permissions like the *nix people do? I shouldn't
have to do anything special for TortioseSVN clients on my Win 9x boxes
to hit svnserver on my XP machine beyond simple network access, right?
And, if I understand it correctly, I shouldn't need to make the repos
themselves shared. All access should be through the server, right? Any
other gotchas that I haven't thought of?

TIA,
Drake Christensen
