You make sure you are in the 'group' cvsadmin as defined in the /etc/group

It is usually a bad idea to delete an old revision. It is considered
'better' to commint a new version that reverse the impact of the
previous commit.

So, if version 1.13 of your file has a problem, you would want to use

  cvs update -j 1.13 -j 1.12 QuarantineReportDlg.h
  ... the file QuarantineReportDlg.h now looks like version 1.12 of the file.
  cvs commit
  ... you have now reversed the problem that arose with your commit to
  ... create version 1.13 of the file which is 'better' than losing the
  ... information that it was in a bad state for a while.

Read for more information.
