I apologize in advance and feel a little silly for not being able to find in
the FAQ or news group the answer to this question. I'm sure it's already
been asked before. 

I am trying to revert to a previously checked in version of files in a
project. I want to check into the tip of my development line or branch an
older version that has been tagged or maybe by date. I thought I would
simply two step process. 

1. update sandbox with the branch or the main development line I want to
2. Issue the cvs update -j TAG_TO_REVERT_TO 

If I wanted it to be date, I would replace the tag after the -j option with
the date and time. This didn't seem to work. What steps should I use to
