checkout via tagname, then can't add

I am having some problems and can't seem to find the answer anywhere.
Hopefully, you can help.

I want to checkout files based on a nonbranch tag name. Based on these
files I will be creating new files. These new files will need to be
added, then committed, and finally tagged. I can't seem to get these new
files added to the repository. The error message I get is: "cannot add
file on nonbranch tag 'tagname' "  I definitely do not want to create a
branch, I am not trying to set a branch tag. I want to use a plain, main
trunk, tag name to do my checkout.

Detail Commands
1. cvs checkout -r tagname htdocs
2. creating new files in the same directories that were originally
checked out
3. cvs update -A  filenames  (this was an attempt to remove the sticky
4. cvs add newfiles
5. error message occurs: "cannot add file on nonbranch tag 'tagname' "

Can you not checkout via nonbranch tag and then add files to it- even if
you do an update -A????

Please advise.
