Yes, use: 'cvs up -r'
Find out what revision number you want to retrieve, let's say it's 1.5, and do:
cvs up -p -r 1.5 filename.ext > filename.ext
This command will retrieve revision 1.5 of "filename.ext" from the repository and copy it to the same file.  You must use '-p' in conjunction with redirection ('>') to avoid getting any sticky tags.  Then commit the file.
Hope this helps.
