Couple of backup questions

1. Is it ok to svnadmin hotcopy to a network drive (to be backed up)? I
know you should not run subversion on networked drives...

2. If we have proper backups and we lose a machine that is not
recoverable, can we restore the repository to another box? I ask because
in the SVN book it mentions that: "Since Berkeley databases are not
portable across machine architectures, this format is a useful way to
transfer those databases from machine to machine, irrespective of
architecture or operating system."

If not, what is the common way of insuring that backups will be
recoverable even if the machine caught on fire and burned to the ground?
