For both this and the next task, you would use the post-commit hook.
Hooks are described in the Subversion book. See http://svnbook.org.

There are a variety of scripts already written to handle email
updates. See the contrib and/or tools directory of the Subversion
source distribution.

Do you mean that you have a number of people with working copies on
their own Windows XP computers, and when anybody checks in something
from any computer, all computers get updated? If so, then have
fun. :-) But that's not how Subversion is intended to be used, and I
think you'll have happier developers and a more smooth ride if you
use Subversion the way it was meant to be used, which is amply
described in the aforementioned book, though you'll probably need to
set aside a weekend to read it and understand it.
