Repos on Linux (RH9), want to view offline on Windows

Using SVN 1.3.1, I have a server (using the svnserver, not WebDAV) running
on our main server, which works great. Clients are all Windows users using

I do daily backups of the repositories (using the hotcopy command) which I
am able to restore on the linux server and access fine, so they seem valid.
If I take the same backup (which was compressed to a tar.gz file after the
hotcopy) and extract it on my laptop, I am unable to browse it with Tortoise
or with the SVN command line tools. They complain about "Unable to open an
ra_lcoal session to URL" and that FSFS is an unknown file type.

I had thought that FSFS was supposed to be platform independent, so I
figured what I was trying to do should be possible.

I would really like to be able to copy the repositories onto my laptop so
that when I am traveling, or otherwise disconnected from the internet, I can
browse the source history.
