According to previous threads in this group:
         cvs co -r<old_branch_tag>
         cd <checked out module dir>
         cvs admin -N<new_branch_tag>:<old_branch_tag> .
         cvs tag -d <old_branch_tag> .

If you mean revert your working copy to HEAD (or main trunk):
       cd <working copy dir>
       cvs up -A

The '-A' will change all file revisions to the tip of the main trunk
as well as rmove any sticky options.

Note: -r<branch_name> always comes after the CVS command (e.g. 'cvs
update -r branch2').  For more info type 'cvs -H update'.
