How to access SVN repository on mapped network drive (I:, K: ....) ?

I am trying to setup subVersion under Windows XP environment.
My system is:
Windows XPSP2+Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) SVN/1.2.3 PHP 5.0.2 DAV/2

I did successfully set up a repository at a local drive of my PC, and
can access it
by TortoiseSVN via something like http://localhost/lsvn ('l' is to
designate local repository).

I use FSFS, not BDB.

I fell in troubles when trying to set up repository to network mapped
drive. The remote computer
(server) is under SuSe Linux with Samba. I want to use for repository
\\server\imc\svnrepos directory,
and also mapped \\server\imc as 'I:'. I cannot access this remote
repository and here is what I find in
Appache error.log file:

[Thu Dec 08 21:50:43 2005] [error] [client] (20014)Error
string not specified yet: Can't open file
'I:\\svnrepos\\HeatRegulator\\format': The system cannot find the path
[Thu Dec 08 21:50:44 2005] [error] [client] Could not fetch
resource information. [500, #0]
[Thu Dec 08 21:50:44 2005] [error] [client] Could not open the
requested SVN filesystem [500, #720003]
[Thu Dec 08 21:50:44 2005] [error] [client] Could not open the
requested SVN filesystem [500, #720003]

The file I:\svnrepos\HeatRegulator\format exists, because I created the
repository with TortoiseSVN and saw that it is there.
The file I suppose the problem is with doubled backslashes, but how to
resolve this ?
Any one felt (and resolved) in this problem ?
