Are you using mapped drives rather than UNCs on the XP workstations?
I found that there is a marked speed improvement on UNCs vs mapped
Using UNCs, it's as fast for me to checkout to a network directory as it
is the local drive.

I've seen this performance issue with both linux and win2k3 servers
holding the svn repository.
