[Samba] File Locking

We don't use source control because we work directly on server. If we use
CVS each programmer have to work locally and we don't want that to happen.
I would like to use a source control product, I only tried CVS and it has
that problem.
Why do you say that is more productive to work on the same file?? We are
developing web apps so it can be very dangerous that 2 guys work on the same
php file. 
I don't know what to do...

Let's me play devils advocate for a minute and I'll try to keep it short.
What source control product do you use?

Why can't two people work on the same file at the same time? It's more
productive that way, and that's what good Merge functions are for in CVS and
the like. It's rare that two people are actually working on the same
problem, at the same time, in the same file.

            In my enterprise we have our php web projects in a Linux server.
We are using Samba shared folders to access the source code. The problem
that I'm having is that I need a mechanism to control de access of the files
so that 2 developers working on the same project can't open the same file
for writing at the same time. The only thing that I found for this is using
Frontpage extensions, but I hate to use Interdev as the editor. I would like
that all developers uses the editor of their preference.

I thought that maybe it was a good idea to use samba for this purpose. If I
can achieve this, it will be transparent to the developer. 

If it can be done by configuring samba it would be great. Or maybe there's a
way to extend samba, I don't know if there's a way to do this.


Thank you very much
