Don't cheap out on something as important as your SCM repository. Disk
space is cheap compared to losing or corrupting your repository. Put
it on a real server OS, on real server hardware (or a VM, Subversion
runs fine under a VM), with real server-grade storage.

It should search for path \\iflmuw-vss-53\SVN. The error is coming due to forward and backward slash conflict."

// is invalid for a UNC path. You can escape the slashes in your
Apache configuration, or wrap it in quotes.

But your next problem will be permissions. Then locking (it may not be
a problem today, but possibly in the future).

We have a saying around my office: If you don't do it right the first
time, how will you have time to do it a second time?
