All 1.x Subversion clients should be compatible with all 1.x
Subversion servers*, so it shouldn't much matter what the IT guys
installed on the server.

There is no keyword called $Header$. The available keywords are $Date
$, $Revision$, $Author$, $HeadURL$, and $Id$, and are listed here:


If you are using one of the supported keywords, and you have the
svn:keywords property of that file set to include that keyword, and
the expansion isn't happening when you check out or export, then
check what's set in the svn:keywords property again. A common mistake
is to inadvertently enclose the list of keywords in quotation marks,
which is not correct and will cause the first and last keyword listed
not to work.

* except of course that if you have an older server, you won't be
able to take advantage of some features introduced with newer
versions, but keywords have been around forever so that's not
relevant here.
