Newbie question: Do I need svnserve?

I'm considering moving my group from a commercial configuration
management system (CMSynergy) to subversion.

We're about a dozen developers, running Win2000/WinXP boxes. We also
have a netapp file server that everyone can mount as a network volume
(i.e., "V:").

My question is as follows: Is there any *need* for me to install
svnserve (or Apache2) for the team to work concurrently on the same
repository, or does the svn client (command line or TortoiseSVN) provide
all the functionality needed, especially concurrent access control so
that we don't hose each other? In other words, is there any reason not
to use file:///v:/repository... as the URL instead of svn://repository?
The FAQ and book are a bit vague about this ("If you just want to access
a repository, then you only need to build a Subversion client. If you
want to host a networked repository, then you need to set up either
Apache2 or an "svnserve" server"),
