Environments and versions

Even after reading the Cederqvist documentation, I'm not at all sure how to
utilize Tags and Branches for the requirements of my project.  I am really
hoping someone might be able to shed some light on this issue.

The project binaries will need to be deployed to a dev, test, and eventually
prod server.  So I would like to mark this fact in the repository, such that
once testing is done on the dev environment, it can be released or promoted
to the test environment (and likewise for test->prod).  At the same time, I
would like to maintain version information for the current project release.

It sounds like the environment information would need to be a branch (with
HEAD being dev?) and the version information would need to be a tag.  Does
this all sound reasonable so far?

My questions, then, are:
1) How would I check out the prod branch with tag release-1-0
2) will the tags "carry" between branches?  Or maybe a better way to ask,
will the tags be maintained between the three branches?

Thanks for any help
