Note: The OP was asking about SEEING a previous version, not reverting changes.

For reverting a module/directory to a previous state (so it becomes 
the "current" state and can be commited later) use:

cvs update -j HEAD -j DESIRED_TAG modules

This assumes your sources are up-to-date on the main trunk, and you 
want to go back to DESIRED_TAG.
In case you were working on a branch, replace HEAD by the branch name.
