repository on USB drive

I would like to transfer files between multiple machines not
(necessarily) connected to a network. Version control is a given. I
have discarded the possibility of merging repositories pending
persuasive argument to the contrary.

I'm storing a repository on a USB drive (FAT32) and checking out
working directories on various machines. So far, I am using the same
general operating system (winXP) and the same version of SVN
(actually, tortoiseSVN 1.3.0 RC1) with no hitches.

I would like to expand the experiment to include different versions
and operating systems. Would anyone recommend against using different
svn clients to directly access a repository? Is there a hard and fast
compatibility rule (such as major versions are incompatible, minor are
backward and forward, builds are only backward compatible)?

Thanks for any advice or shared experiences. Cheers,
