I'm doing this right now. The SVN server is Win2K3 hosted inside
VMWare, and the repository resides on a SAN LUN that Windows sees as
its E drive.

My repository isn't terribly large (could dozen MB, under 300
revisions) but I've had zero trouble with it. Once my main project
cools off some, I'm going to transfer my larger repository (couple
hundred megs, 1300 revs) to that server as well.
