With an unlocked bootloader you are able to install custom Kernels. CyanogenMod based ROMS require a diffrent kernel and this requires an unlocked bootloader.
You need to follow this tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2354721
AND REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR TA PARTITION!!!!!!

...Except you CAN get CM 10.2, CM 11, AOKP, PAC-Man Rom, SlimBean and SlimKit on Locked Bootloader thanks to @bagyusz. His roms have been featured on the XDA portal for allowing SPs with locked bootloader to have all that goodness. If you want one of those, and you can't unlock your bootloader, it's all good!

True but not all the CM based ROMS are Lockedbootloader compatible (yet)..
