file:/// access to fsfs repository

I am trying to access an fsfs repository located on a Windows server from a
Win2K PC.

In Windows speak, the repository is at:

\\bp_exserver\shared\repos

or, using network drive mapping [S: = \\bp_exserver\shared] on the client,

S:\repos

Using the svn client (1.1.0RC3)

svn ls file:///s:/repos
... list of repository contents ...
Works OK

svn ls file:///bp_exserver/shared/repos
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///bp_exserver/shared/repos'

Try adding an extra '/' before bp_exserver
svn ls file:////bp_exserver/shared/repos
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///bp_exserver/shared/repos'

DIR \\bp_exserver\shared\repos
... list of repos working folders ...
Works OK

Is there a way to specify UNC files on a LAN without resorting to drive
mapping?

Simon
