specifying tags for the checkout


here is my problem. let's say I had 4 files (a,b,c,d) on my main branch in a CVS module. these 4 files were tagged PROD1-0. from this version of my 4 files I created a new branch DEV1-0. In this branch I made some modifications and deleted file d. then I tried to merge the branch DEV1-0 into PROD1-0. the modifications I had made were merged into the main branch. and I tagged the files a,b,c PROD2-0.
Now when I want to modify something in thoses files, I encounter a problem. I do a checkout without specifying a tag name, so I'm checking out all the files with the HEAD tag, which are the latest version of a,b and c and also d which I don't want to have since I deleted it. the solution I have not to retrieve d is to specify a tag name (PROD2-0) when I do the check out. but then I can't modify the files because of the sticky tag.

I'm sure there is a nice way to solve this problem. I'm probably not doing the things right.
