That's not the way cvs works - you might be better off looking at an alternative versions control system if that is really a requirement. >The CVSNT documentation indicates to use the command "cvs admin -L". >But when I tried to execute it, I obtain the message: That would lock an individual file.

You would have to execute this command on a file within a checked out repository. You can do 'fake' reserved checkouts using the 'edit -c' and 'commit -c' commands, but it's really a sub-optimal way of using cvs (it's designed for files which can't really be merged, like .doc files).
