Windows remote clients

Although I've been using Subversion (via TortoiseSVN) for a little while, it's
been as a single developer. Now I need to set up a system for a multi-developer
workgroup and I'm a bit of a newby at this...

The situation is that there are a couple or so developers connected to a LAN,
and the repository would want to be on a NAS drive (because that's what gets
backed up). It would be tricky to run svnserve on this drive :). All machines
are Windows XP and the repository will use the FSFS format.

So my first query is: can these developers all simultaneously access the
repostitory via normal Windows file shares? The SVN manual suggests this is OK
but only explicitly deals with multiple clients on the same machine.

Next, there will be a remote developer connecting over a slow and possibly
problematic link. Ideally he'd like his own local repository so he doesn't have
to deal with the link too much. Is there a scenario where this could be
achieved? If it makes any difference, each developer would be using their own
branch in the repository for work in progress and then only merging into the
trunk when whatever they're working on is done and working. However, since the
other developers will at times want access to the remote developers work, he
still needs to commit his changes to his branch periodically.
