SVN book feedback - dealing with Windows file and directory name issues

In one Subversion project created on Linux, when I tried to checkout a 
local copy on Windows, I ran into a directory named "aux" which is the 
name of a device on Windows.

In another project, I ran into several files in the same directory where 
the files had the same name in different cases (e.g. TOKEN.c, token.c).

If there is a way to handle these differences on Windows in your working 
copy when you don't own the Linux repository, it would be helpful to 
know about.
