new release, replace older release files

I'm familiar with basic CVS functioning, but when it comes to managing 'releases', etc., I'm still a little hazy.

Here's my situation:
I have a module which represents a project I'm working on containing a set of files.  I have completely rewritten the 'project', however, so the project as it 'used to be' (ie: the old files) are no longer necessary and I'd like to replace them with the set of new files (the project 'as it is').. but I obviously want to keep the old files in history.  I'm not really sure how best to go about this.  Should I 'cvs remove' the older files and then add the new files under a new release tag?  Basically I'd like to be able to go back at any time and retrieve either the older version of the project or the current one according to a release tag (say, beta 1 or beta 2).

Can anyone share with me the what the 'conventional' way of doing this would be?
