large imports and tmp files

Warning! I'm a svn newbie. I so have some user-level experience with

I'd like to use svn to maintain histories of some large binary files
(Parallels virtual hard disk images). they are typically 10-30 GB
each. I have installed the svn server and client on my OS X system.
The working files are on my laptop's boot drive, and the repository
on a 160GB secondary Firewire drive that I plug in when I'm at home.

However, I cannot even import one of these files because 'svn
import' fills up all available disk space on the boot drive. The
available free space on this drive is less than the size of the file
I want to import. Is there any way to direct where svn writes its tmp
files? From earlier postings in this list I gather that svn writes
them in the source directory. I have plenty of space on the secondary
drive if I could point svn to some location there.

I'm also wondering if I *temporarily* move data of my boot drive to
accomplish the initial svn import, will I have the same problem when
the time comes to commit changes?
