Performance and linux-win interoperability probs

Hello SVN land,

Got SVN up and running, works beautifully in most circumstances.
Unfortunately, all those not-so-beautiful circumstances involve my work.
  There, we have SVN running via Apache on a Fedora Core / 1 box.
Clients are all WinXP Pro, checking out onto a Win 2003 Server via
windows "mapped drives." Project contains about 2-3k files; after SVN
is done, it contains 7.6k files. Now for the comparisons:

- Checking out locally on the Linux server is blindingly fast.
- Checking out from a WinXP workstation onto that local machine is decent.
- Checking out from a WinXP workstation onto the Win 2003 server is
horrifically slow (as in hours and hours to complete).
- Checking out from the Win 2003 server onto its own local drive is
about as fast as that for the WinXP workstations.

Any ideas about how I might improve the speed for the WinXP workstation
-> Win 2003 server checkout scenario? And please, as much as I might
personally agree, I can't really entertain the "stop working on Windows"
suggestions.

We're considering checking out onto that same Linux server, and having
the Win 2003 server access the checkouts via another network drive.
Anybody have any experience with this or similar situations?

Thanks,
Michael
