Partitioning shouldn't affect the locking characteristics of the storage engine used. (If you find that it does, please report a bug.)

InnoDB performs row-level locking, so it's probably a good fit for what you're wanting to do. Take a look at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/innodb-transaction-model.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/innodb-lock-modes.html for details, and let us know how things work out.
