No, it should be enough to have at least one lockpick in the inventory. Then simply use the crate. PC_Hero should kneel in front of it and wait for left-right input.
The lockpicking skill enhances the chance that a lockpick will survive a wrong move. So strictly speaking it´s not necessary to invest skill points here.
The gothic.ini includes an option to scramble the locks after each reload, if you prefer it that way.

By the way, Alrik, I did find that sword and it wasn't until I got into camp that I discovered it causes considerable more damage than a pic ax.
Close to the starting position was a teleport rune to be found, I think. You could also climb up a hill an collect some loot.

And, yes, I certainly am saving often.
Quicksave can be activated in the gothic.ini, AFAIR. Use at your own risk and avoid doing it during interaction of any kind. Don´t forget to make a regular save as backup every 30 minutes or so.

1.08k should be the latest. I uploaded it to our server some time ago, together with the fps-patch to unlock the frame rate. An unofficial texture pack can also be found somewhere. The search function should reveal how to install this stuff.

I have to admit: I don't like the game controls one bit. I am sure I will eventually get used to them but I find they significantly take away from the game play.
This impression will change. Just remember that "Action key + forward" does almost everything. The combat will get more attractive when your character knows more sophisticated tactics.

A little hint: You can find two people in the ring who offer to escort you to the other camps. Acccept their offer immediately. They´ll wait until you are ready. Follow them and stay 10m behind. They´ll clean the roads for you and you´ll get the xp.
