Probably the easiest thing is to just install FreeBSD on a machine.
It will run on almost anything in the i386 line as sell as the
newer AMD64 and IA64 stuff and some others. Then you can install
subversion from ports (/usr/ports/devel/subversion)

All of the instal ISOs for FreeBSD are available via anonymous FTP
from ftp.freebsd.org. Log in as ID 'anonymous' with your Email address
as password. Then cd to

and then to the version you want. Versions 6.3 and 7.0 are the
most recent releases (in FreeBSD you want a 'RELEASE' version instead
of current or stable)

If you have a reasonably good network connection, then you only
need the disc1 ISO. You start the install and it pulls everything
else it wants over the net. If your net connection is slow or
unreliable, then also get disc2 and disc3.

You should read the installation section of the FreeBSD handbook
on the FreeBSD web site -- /www.freebsd.org/

Once you get it installed, then install subversion from ports.
