I think you're making assumptions that aren't quite correct.

a) Where you put Subversion working copies does not depend on whether
you're using a GUI or the command-line client.

b) Any client, GUI or otherwise, can put the working copy on any volume
that can be accessed "almost" like a local file sytem. NFS and Samba
shared fall into that category. FTP shares don't, unless you have
special software on the client that mounts an FTP directory as a remote

Or possibly I misunderstand completely, and what you're really looking
for is a GUI that will run on Unix under X, that your developers can use
from a Windows X server. There are sveral such GUIs around, see the
Links page on subversion.tigris.org.
