MS SQl Server 2000 sp4

There is a DB maintence (Optimizations) job set up (via maintenance plans) which reorganizes data and index pages and removes unused space from the database.

My boss saw that it had not run in awhile so he kicked it off. Only problem is that the Transaction log backups kicked off at the same time and now it looks like they are both running and probably locking each other out. SP_WHO and SP_WHO2 doesn't show me any locks.. How can I identify if they are inded locked and if they are.. which can I safely kill?????
