Best anoncvs Site to Update 6.2 Sources

	After installing FreeBSD6.2 from the ISO image, I figured
that cvsup would be the best way to update the new system and
apply the patches which have come out since the image was
created.  I think I have cvsup ready to go, but I can't tell for
sure since the mirror site I picked was the first one in the list
for the United states.  It is and is obviously
quite popular.  cvsup tried all night long to connect and never
got in .  The next mirror site for the US is and it appears to be down.  Since all I need
is to update all the sources for FreeBSD6.2, is there a better
choice of sites?  I got these 2 site names from the FreeBSD
handbook.  We have been using FreeBSD here since 2001, but I have
never seriously tried cvsup until now since we are installing
several new servers, all using FreeBSD6.2.
