I wasn't clear or whether you're talking about a working copy on a
share drive or a repository on a share drive. It's recommended you do
neither. Repository on anything but a local drive is often quite
problematic. Working copy on a share drive can work, though you may
run into some issues.

But that's neither here nor there since what you ultimately want is
the auto-versioning feature. No, there is no way to do it other than
running an Apache2/WebDAV server. Instructions for setting up
Subversion in this or any other configuration are in the book, which
you should read:
