what version of SQL Server are you using?
the syntax you show looks fine, however do you have a space between  the database name and the keyword SET?
how do you run the statement?

>Can I execute this statement while other users are in the database?
yes

>Any other way to set this option?
yes:
exec sp_dboption 'dbname', 'trunc. log on chkpt.', 'false'
