AW: NFS file system

But "if there's only one server [...]" the only relevant
question is, why run that server on a another machine at all?

This is probably the same.

More than one user can access the repository through pserver / Apache at
the same time. The thing is that Subversion needs to lock certain files
of the repository on a low level. That's why it won't work on networked
file systems.

Correct me if I'm wrong!
