I think you may need to check the services running on your windows
machine. Virus scanners & indexing services are known to slow down the
checkout time. Check the I/O writes in your Task Manager. Remember,
for each file in the repository, svn client needs to create 2+ files
on the local disk.
Anyway checkout is a one time operation, u can schedule it when u go
home in the evening, :-).
