Sysinstall and packages

At work I run 6.2 stable and due to firewall problems I cannot download
packages or port sources using http.

Sysinstall works but I can't figure out the configuration setting to get
the latest packages and not those at the 6.2 release level.

I tried setting the configuration release name to any, but sysinstall
never finds the index file on a ftp server.

Any hints?
