This topic arises often. For example there is a thread 
"CVS - setup reserved checkout" that starts here:


Advisory locking is available in cvs using 'cvs edit' along with
'cvs editors' and 'cvs watch' ... See the URL:


for more pointers.

If you have a lot of binary format files, you may wish to consider
something other than cvs as your Configuration Mangaement software.

You may find that using another SCM system such as:
   "Aegis" (aegis.sourceforge.net)
or "Subversion" (subversion.tigris.org)

may be a useful alternative to consider.
