the BDB based filesystem will not work on windows 98, there are
fundamental issues in how berkeley db is implemented that make it
impossible to use there. if you want to use file:// access on windows
98 you need to use an fsfs repository.

when people say "you can't run a server", that also implies "you can't
use file:// access", since that means that the svn client is also acting
as the server, for all intents and purposes. fsfs is the only way
around this.
