Previous version == version that is not default on trunk.  If the 
current version is 1.7, then do this:

cvs up -r1.6 MyJar.jar

Important means important to you and your dev team / build environment. 
  Which versions are required to build your product (including previous 
releases of your product)?  Only the latest at the tip of each branch, 
or every version, or somewhere in between?

There are lots of docs on the Internet on how CVS works.  March Hare 
offers training for commercial support customers.  You might consider 
taking some time to learn the tool you are trusting your source code to.
