You should not create repositories on network drives; you could encounter [permissions|performance|corruption|dataloss] problems. Repositories should be on a disk local to the machine that's running svnserve or httpd with mod_dav_svn to serve it to users, and should be secured so that only the user that svnserve or httpd runs as can read from and write to them.
