I do basically the same thing on my Windows machines: Rightclick on My
Computer, Click Properties. (On Win2k:) Click Advanced. Click
Environment Variables. Choose if you're defining it for you or for any
users of the PC. Just you, click the top New... button. For others,
click the bottom New... button. Type a short name or letter as Jack
showed, and type in (or paste in ;) you're repository url. OK until all
the windows go away.

New command windows will see your environment variable as %VARNAME%

Usage: svn list %SVNAKT%/project/trunk
