You can approach this as a "wedge" issue to make hosting on Linux
possible (depending on how vital this repository is). I suspect that
you will wind up with a corrupt repo at some point in time if you are
accessing via HTTP from Linux *and* via file:// from Windows; I can't
guarantee that, but I would be very wary of trying to manage a repo over
the NTFS compatibility layer.

If you cannot convince the PHB's that the repo should be hosted on
Linux, I would strongly urge you to install Apache on Windows and
abandon this whole line of experimentation.

Good luck!
