Fixing locked iTunes music library file

When I was copying music to the iPod Shuffle, I accidentally disconnected the iPod from my laptop.  This caused iTunes to crash.  I guess it didn't close the library file correctly, because when I launched iTunes again, I got the following error message:

" The iTunes 4 Music Library rile is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permissions for this file."

This page has a description of how to fix this problem.
