It depends how you want to use it. Read chapters 1 and 6 of the
subversion red book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/index.html)
and try to decide if you want/need apache or just a local svnserve
install. Then go get the appropriate binaries:

http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html#windows

The easiest way for apache is to go for the collabnet server install
that will install a complete apache server setup for you. If you want
more control / just svnserve then you might have to settle for 1.6.6 as
there is no current maintainer for the 1.6.9 windows binaries (unless
you want to build your own).

As for client access, try TortoiseSVN for your windows clients, it
rocks.
