You may use locking. But usually this should be only needed when dealing
with binary files. Subversion uses another approach than source safe.
If you really want to use Subversion the way it is intended, then you
should not try to emulate source safe using Subversion locking, but read
into the details and give it a try:

Especially http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.basic.vsn-models.html

Many users think that editing files concurrently will mess them up, but
that's not the case. Of course it is possible to mess up things, this
often is the case when people do not know what they are doing with their
sourcecode.

greetings,

Nico
