*Sigh*

You really should believe the FAQ, you know. It says there that
Subversion doesn't work as a server on Win9x/Me. We certainly didn't
write that down with our fingers crossed. In-repository diff will fail.
Merge will fail. Checkout will fail. In some situations, even update and
commit will fail. The platform simply does not provide the APIs that a
Subversion server currently needs.

Now, I'm fairly certain that, with a lot of effort, this could be
changed. If someone comes up with a patch that doesn't affect other
platforms (and doesn't require separate compilation for Win9x), it might
be accepted. Although I would personally advise against trying to use a
fundamentally broken platform for any kind of server that stores
critical data.
