using Subversion over the internet (with Windows?): Howto?

We're using Subversion for 1 year now (with TortoiseSVN on the clients) on 3
different locations: 1 in Europe and 2 in Africa. Because of the poor
internet connections in Africa we coudln't centralise the repository's, so
we have a repository in each of the 3 locations. I choose to have all the
projects in 1 repository, because it seemd much easier instead of creating a
new repository for each project.

Internet-connectiosn are getting bettet, and I woudl like to start testing
on putting all the projects in Europe, and have an access to Subversion via
internet for my african development teams. I informed me alreaddy a lot
about this kind of configuration of subversion, but i'm kind of lost... :-(

The fact is: I would like to install the less possible, but need a good
security. Some more specific questions:

- What are the exact possiblity's for doing this? Only with Linux + Apache?
Or are there others too? what's that svn + ssh stuff?

- I would prefer to have everything on a Windows 2003 server. Is this

- I would like to have a tight security:
    * I need to be able to define which user can commit to which project.
    * Some projects should be absolutely hidden: the existence of it should
be unknown for some programmers.
    * For each project, I want specific commit-hooks: only the developers
considered shoudl be warned with an email.
    * Is all this possible when they are in the same repository?
    * And ofcourse: people outside of the company shouldn't have any access
at all :-)

- Is there somewhere a step by step instalaltion guide for all this?

I knwo these are a bucnh of questions, but I admit that I just don't knwo
anymore where to start :-( Any help would be really appreciated!

Thansk a lot in advance,
