	I guess it is often better to give the real situation instead of
asking vague hypotheticals.

The server I have is windows, yes.  I would like to be able to create a
central repository on a shared disk and access it from the server and my
laptop (also windows), and maybe also from some linux machines.  I want to
be able to ultimately store code in the central repository, but I would
like the ability to make local code changes on my laptop when disconnected
and then sync up with the server later.  I am also not confident that I
have the server long term, I may loose the existing server and get
assigned another, so I don't want to have to go through too many hoops to
set up the service, or at least nothing that I can't make into scripts I
can save on the disk space, which is stable.
