Changing server OSes is hardly a trivial task, especially in a large
corporate environment - nor is it a guarantee of a fix (consider the
damage done to the reputations of Apache, Linux, and SVN in his
organization if switching to Linux didn't solve the problem).
Corporations don't just switch their server OS on a whim.

Moreover, this SVN server may do multiple jobs, all requiring Windows.
 Making a switch that much harder.

Windows 2003 is a pretty solid OS, and there are lots of people
running Apache on it successfully.

Let's focus instead on helping him get the system he has working properly.

Moving up to a known solid SVN release is a smart move - 1.2.1 is
pretty old, 1.2.3 would be good or even 1.3.x. Eric may also want to
look for x64-native builds of Apache & SVN, as they may help reduce
conflicts & weird behavior.
