Branching and tagging clarification

I'm sorted of new to CVS and I like some clarification.

I need to pause development of the current requirements in order to
move forward some future requirements and release the current
requirments later. So this would mean that I would create a branch from
the last release. During this course of development there will be a
number of releases before I reach the point where I can merge this back
into the trunk to resume development on the original requirements.

I want to clarify that every time I create a tag on the branch, those
tags must be a branch tag. Ie. I want the tag structure to look like:-

|                        |

And if that is the case, how do I 'make' and existing tags have the
right revisions against them as I haven't been doing this. As a result,
I now have "cvs commit: sticky tag R6 for file F1 is not a branch"
