To interface with Subversion, I use http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ which is
intergrates with the windows shell.

As for subversion, I think that if you use it on your server, then you will
have to upgrade to Apache 2.0 and most of the setup will be done on the
command line (which is simple enough once it's been setup). Once you
repository has been setup you can use tortoise in windows to do everything

Hope this helps,
