[CentOS-mirror] lock files

I run a private centos mirror. Using rsync from the es.net mirror
I'm sure you get this all the time, but how do I use lock files with the
rsync client to keep multiple from spawning because of cron jobs?
My mirror also hosts ubuntu and a few others which run at the same time,
if this info is needed.
Right now the cron job just SH's a script containing a screen call with
the rsync command in it. And I would like to keep it this way. At least
that sh script. What im really looking for is a script that checks for
the lockfile if its running. And then if its not SH's the script. I
would have the cron job run that script, and that script would run my
sh script called centos.sh located in /root/
Server is run on centos 5.3 i386
Let me know any other info needed
