By not using CVS.  The C in CVS stands for Concurrent, and disallowing
multiple checkouts is almost exactly what CVS was not designed to do.

It is possible to use "cvs watch on" to force CVS to checkout and
update files in read-only status, which will be changed to read-write
status with "cvs edit", and "cvs editors" will show who is editing
the file.  This is as close as CVS gets, and in my experience
notification is just as good as hard locking.
