help with committing change

Hi All,

I'm using WinCVS against a linux cvs-1.10.7-7.  I'm trying to set up
a repository with two consecutive releases of source code.

The problem I have is that I can't commit a edited file to the repository.
The error I get is:

cvs commit -m "Added support for SID sector file section to section
array." -r dev-build33-1 src\objlib\SectorFile.h (in directory
cvs server: sticky tag `dev-build33-1' for file `src/objlib/SectorFile.h' is
not a branch
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

This is what I did:

I imported a new module.
The revisions created were 1.1 on all files, so I 'updated' the working
directory to download 1.1 revision files.
Applied tag 'build-32' as first release to put under source control.
I did a 'cvs edit -c' on all the files to unlock them and copied the next
version (which I had offline) overtop the working directory.
Then I commited everything that changed to get a revision 1.2 on all my
files and I put down another tag 'dev-build33-1'.
Then I updated my working directory based on 'dev-build33-1'.

I did a reserved edit on sectorfile.h and I get the error when I tried to
commit it.

What am I missing here?  Why do I need a branch if I'm not doing any
parallel development?  I just want a single chain of revisions with tags
along the way.  If I download a working directory based on a tag, can I not
commit my changes?

Thanks in advance!
