CVS has been around forever and does what you need.  Subversion
adds better support for loosely connected groups working
independently but you will probably want close coordination

You can access the repository remotely as easily as through
the filesystem.   Every developer should have his own
workspace and frequently commit his own changes and update
the code to pick up the other committed changes but it
doesn't matter if the workspaces are local or not.  The
price is right for Linux development software...

If you don't have a gui you might be able to develop and
test on other platforms - or at least be able to compile
under Cygwin.  When that works, the code could be committed
and someone could check it back out on the Linux box and build
for testing.
