Well, CVS was designed to explicitly allow multiple developers to update
the same file.  So it is not a problem, it was a design goal.

The idea is to let multiple developers update the same file, then merge
their respective changes together.

Obviously some file types don't work well for this, but text based stuff
does.  And cvs edit and company should be used for those files.

What exact problems are you having?
