Really a reserved checkout?

I am new to CVS.

CVS gives the option of "reserved checkouts". offers a GUI where we have the option of
1.reserved edit
2.forced edit

But the problem is even it is reserved edit/forced edit
then the other person logs in alters the readonly file
at the client and then commits it into the repository.

In that case what does "exclusive locking" mean.
Is this really possible in CVS. If I edit a file, UNTIL 
I COMMIT it no one should be able to commit that file.

Thanks and Regards,
Arun Sundar
