Rsync doesn't do any file locking -- it just opens the file for reading on the
sending side.  If there are locking problems, you will have to look elsewhere to
solve them.

Also, it is much more efficient to run rsync on the system that is the actual
source of the data instead of on a system that mounts the data via a network
filesystem.  So, if possible, change the source rsync to run on the Windows 2000
server itself and it should work better.
