get latest version?

I am new to CVS so please bear with me.

I am trying to use CVS correctly to get the latest src
code from the repository.  When I do a "update", it says
a lot of my files on my local file-system are modified.  That
is true, however, I want to throw away those changes and get
the latest version. 

The only way I could do this was to copy the output from
cvs update -R
into a text file, edit the file so it replaced each M with a rm
command and then run the text file as a script.  Once all the files
had been deleted, running 
cvs update -R 
would get the previous modifed (now deleted) files.

How do I do this in one step using CVS?
