Not sure what you exact collabnet setup is, but if you can create a new
certificate that collabnet can access and grant it the Observer fold you can
run reviewboard quite nicely.
Add some extra lines to the .subversion/servers file in the home directory
csd200a = *.csd200a.com
ssl-client-cert-file = /var/www/.subversion/cert.p12
ssl-client-cert-password = password
http-proxy-host = proxy.whatever.com
http-proxy-port = 8080
This is on Linux - I have no idea about the details of Windows or the H:\
drive problem sorry.
For the 2nd option, can you please tell me how to use my user name to

If you export a copy of your certificate and point to it in your servers
file it should work. The only problem is you need to either leave it
unencrypted or specify the password in the servers file. Both are pretty
bad ideas in general. Having a special reviewboard specific certificate
with read-only access is slightly better.
