A client of mine is needing a very simple file sharing situation. I am wondering if share points will be suitable in this case.

Apparently two people are working in one office, on very complex and important quark documents. Sharing files via e-mail and USB keychain drives is leading to some confusion and causing extra work, because important changes are being accidentally overwritten by the other.

They want to use an older G4 as a file server where all of the quark files will be stored on the server and not on the individual's computers. They want to be able to access these files and work on them and again save them onto the server. I see no problem up till now.

The main concern is this.... They want to prevent two people from being able to open the same document at the same time as this would bring them right back to where they are now. This must be a common issue in the office file sharing environment. Can Sharepoints prevent this from happening? If not, any suggestions?
