managing art assets with subversion

Hello, i'm developing a project with tons of 3d models, textures and
such and well, we've decided to install svn to give it a try (we were
using cvs before), but until now we used only a repository for source code.
Well, after talking with artists we've decided to add all art to the svn
repository too. But a lot of questions from artists arised, i put them
here, if anyone can help... well, thanx :)

1) "Hey what happens if i'm working with an up to date 3d chair model
and comes the guy B and starts working with the same model?" Of course
that's a BIG problem, is there any way to lock a file so nobody can
update it from repository until it's commited again and then unlocked?
2) "Hey, but models take lot of space, and i usually have lot of
versions of a model, if it's all in repository, won't we run of out
space quickly?" I told him "don't worry, probabhly you can purge all
versions of something, excepting the last", am i right?

Thanx in advance,
