The *-mMSG* is just an option to type the commit message when you check
in the file. So,

cvs commit -m "This is a commit message"

However, it sounds like you want to change messages that are already
logged in CVS. All this information is stored in your CVS repository, in
the ",v" files. These are just text files, so you can edit them. The log
message is under the *log* keyword. Note that the strings are enclosed
in "@", so don't remove these.
