Using sysinstall to install packages.

Does anyone know why sysinstall complains,

    Warning:  Can't find the `5.1-CURRENT' distribution on this FTP
    server.  You may need to visit a different server for the release
    you are trying to fetch or go to the Options   menu and to set the
    release name to explicitly match what's available on
    (or set to "any").

There are packages on my regional ftp mirror that I should be able to
install from, but why doesn't the tag '5.1-CURRENT' get changed to
something that works from anything other than a release install.

Anyone know?
