Shared drive vs Subversion server

we were just starting to use subversion in our shop, and we are
experiencing the following problems:
We aren't using any server process, we just have got our repositories on a

shared network drive. Works fine as long as we are in the same domain.
Another domain is connected to this domain using vpn. First idea was to
use the same approach and map the network drive to the other guys, but it
is dead slow (~20 minutes for a Checkout of 18 MB).
Do you expect the performance to be any better if we were using a
dedicated server, are there any documents / stats to back this up ?

The latency is very bad, especially it seems that Subversion is copying
over all the files one by one, and this is very much overhead over the
shared drive.
It would be much faster if we were just copying them all in one, but I
this is no possibility ?

Thanks in advance,
