I guess "fixing the tag" probably won't mean anything helpful to him ;)
If you are not using some graphical front-end, run "cvs update -A".
If you're using TortoiseCVS run "update special" in the CVS submenu, then choose "HEAD" in "Update revision/tag/branch".

And then, RTFM ;) 
Honestly, you should read some introduction to CVS, it's not as easy to the point of being learned just by fiddling with it.
TortoiseCVS has a nice manual. There are also some good pointers in http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki
