Newbie Questions

Our corporate site has just been upgraded to a dedicated server hosted
by a third party. The server details:

Operating system: Linux
Kernel version: 2.6.9-22.0.1.EL
Machine Type: i686
Apache version: 1.3.34 (Unix)

I myself have never used CVS, but I am familiar with MS VSS, both as a
user and (more limitedly) an administrator.

As I embark on managing a team of myself and two other programmers on a
new software build, I am hoping to use Subversion for version control. I
am trying determine now which versions and options to use. The two most
important issues for me are ease of use and a good GUI that will run
under Windows 2000/XP, as that is what the team runs on their
workstations. I will also admit that I am a bottom-up type of guy (i.e.
I am loathe to read through manuals).

I have briefly examined Subcommander and RapidSVN and both appear to be
what I am looking for as far as a GUI.

What is not clear to me is which versions of Subversion and also which
server type (Apache2 or svnserve) are compatible with these GUI tools. I
suppose we could upgrade the server to Apache 2, but I also don't want
to make the host nervous or confused, as their support has been very
good and they know the tools they have well. I am not sure if they know
Apache 2 well or not.

So any advice as to how to proceed is much appreciated.

Thank you,
Hershel Robinson
