Setting the revision number of a particular file

I would like to set the revision number of a certain file. Instead of going
from 1.1 to 1.1+n I would like to state a "base line" and make the file 2.0.

I looked in the manual and there it only stated what to do when you want to
change ALL the files revisions to 3.0

$ cvs commit -r 3.0

I changed a file and then invoked the following command:  cvs commit -r 3.0
Text9.txt. I updated the log file. The file was set to revision 3.0 and
tagged 3.0. 
Then I changed the file again and tried to commit it. The following error

cvs commit -m Testing text9.txt (in directory D:\Projects\Train\)
cvs server: sticky tag `3.0' for file `text9.txt' is not a branch
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

Then I tried to create a branch and then commit the file again. But the
problem persist. What am I doing wrong? I just want to set the revision to
2.0 and then from
there it must automatically go to 2.1 etc. It must not affect the other

Thank you so much!!
