RE: Subversion GUI client?

Well, now, hold on a sec. I thought that if I used the CLI, I could have
the working copy be on the same box (remote server). Am I wrong about that?

As Branko said, yes, this is the most likely way to do it.

It sounds like you're thinking of something like Clearcase, where all
user workspaces actually live on the server. Subversion isn't like
that. The client creates workspaces on a local drive -- though that
drive *could* be a network share.
