The Subversion server (i.e., the repository side) is the same, except
that it will not host
a Berkeley DB repository on Win9x platforms (Win95/Win98/WinME), because
Berkeley DB has shared-memory segment problems on Win9x.

Nothing in that says it doesn't work on windows 2000... You can find
instructions for setting up a repository in the documentation, it's just
the same as running on any other version of windows...
