No, you haven't.  Expecially not from CVS.  If you want people to be
able to help you, it is critically important that you accurately
transcribe the exact messages you get, rather than reporting some half-
baked impression of the messages.  What you saw was most likely:

        move away a.jsp; it is in the way
        move away b.jsp; it is in the way

What that means is that update found new files in the repository (a.jsp
and b.jsp) that it wants to check out for you, but you already have
files with the same names in your working directory that are not checked
out from CVS.  CVS won't overwrite your local files, so it is asking you
to move them out of the way (e.g., rename them) so that it can check out
the new files.
