Yes and no.  The above commands are correct -- although there's no need
to do them separately, you can combine them:

        cvs co -r project-branch -j merge-from -j merge-to module

The problem is that you're tagging the wrong things.  "merge-from"
should be the revision (on the trunk) just before the changes you want
to merge and "merge-to" should be the revision (also on the trunk) the
contains all of the changes to be merged.
