It's not a good idea to keep the repository separate from the server.
Run your server on server-grade hardware with a server-grade OS and
proper storage - not on a PC with a mapped network drive.

You can easily run Subversion in a relatively small VM with storage
located on a SAN (which will appear as a local drive to the OS and
applications running on it) unless you've got a very large number of
users/amount of traffic.
