Working copy dir can't be on FAT32 partition?

Hello, I'm trying to check out my project directory into a working
directory that is on a FAT32 partition. (I have subversion running
in linux). The error I get is:

svn: Can't set file '/mnt/winE/_pro42/pro42/.svn/entries' read-only:
Operation not permitted.

It seems to have created all of the .svn directory, it just bailed
out when it couldn't set permissions. So, I was hoping it checked it
out ok and that was just a warning. But when I went to the working
dir and tried "svn commit" I got:

svn: '/mnt/winE/_pro42/pro42' is not a working copy

It seems to me, the read-only setting bit should be optional, as it
isn't necessary. That's probably all you'd need to do to support
fat32 working dirs. Is there a setting somewhere for this?

I have subversion installed on my linux lan server. It's the most
recent stable version. (how do I find version number of svn? it's not
listed in svn -help).
