we do not want cvs to create any lock files.

Yes, you do. Otherwise your repository *will* get corrupted.

this has been working for a while, but the last two users that we added are all 
creating lock
files, and it is preventing them from being able to update, or do anything else 
for that matter.

You're looking at this the wrong way around. The problem is not that the lock files exist. CVS automatically creates them and cleans them up, and has been all along. You just haven't noticed it until now.

Your real problem is, something is preventing CVS from cleaning up the lock files when it's done.

What version of the client and server are you using? Can you consistently reproduce the problem? Exactly what command sequence reproduces the problem, and exactly what error message are you getting?
