Sounds like you need to get off of that dinosaur of an operating system 
you're running and move to something a little more modern.  Like Windows 
XP.  That way, you can use TortoiseSVN.  :-)

All joking aside, I've found that TortoiseSVN (<blush> yes, on Windows) 
is actually a pretty good tool.  I do all of my real work on my Linux 
station, then when I get ready to commit (or what have you), I go to my 
Windows box, look at the Samba network share, and use Tortoise.

I just checked and there is a decent-looking-at-first-glance GUI tool 
available for SVN called RapidSVN.  I downloaded it for Linux, but, 
alas, it requires wxWindows and I don't have that installed and 
configured on that box just yet.  So, I installed it on (<blush> again) 
Windows and it doesn't look too bad.  I think I'll spend some time today 
and get RapidSVN running on my Linux box as I would love to be able to 
do everything from one place.

So, if you're thinking about SVN, you may want to take a peek at Rapid 
(  AFAICT, this is the only GUI client that 
will work on Linux that is being actively developed.  Found a couple of 
projects on SourceForge, but nothing looks alive.
