Glen has already given one tip, I just want to add another one that
will help against the lock file problems:

You should enable the lockserver on your CVSNT installation.
This is done in two steps:
1. Install and start the lockserver service (is probably already done)
2. Enable the lockserver by checking out and modifying the
CVSROOT/config file from each repository served by your CVSNT server:
Put this line into the file:

Still the users and SYSTEM needs permission to write the intermediate
files into the repository itself, but the handling of the lockfiles
will be solved by the lockserver.
