"can't get exclusive lock" error when attempting commit

Hi! I'm an SVN beginner, and this is my first time posting to this mailing
list. I know there's been tons of threads regarding the "can't get exclusive
lock" error, but my situation is slightly different and I was curious if
there was any way to solve it.

We are mainly PC based, and our best machine for running the svn server
(hard drive space and reliability) is a Windows Server 2003 machine. I set
it up on that and have been using SVN without any errors, until I tried to
work on and commit from one of our Macs. When using SVN from the PC I access
the server using file:///newdev/SVN, but on the Mac I have to use
file:///Volumes/newdev/SVN (mounting the network drive). I don't really
understand why I don't get any errors on the PC but all of a sudden the Mac
tries to do something that throws that error. I can check out files
perfectly fine on the Mac, but as soon as I try and commit I get the
infamous "can't get eclusive lock" message.

I'm obviously no expert on the matter, so if I'm doing something wrong
please call me out on it ;) I'd love to get this solved without having to
buy new hardware or move too much stuff around, so any feedback/suggestions
would be appreciated. Thanks!
