Generally you would use the latest release (currently 6.2) and then
cvsup (csup) to RElENG_6.     In some cases and possibly this one,
when the hardware might be very recent, you might have to go even
more bleeding edge and install the development branch to get some
needed hardware support.   That would currently be 7.0 and csup to
the latest available.

In general, you do not have to go backwards to match hardware compatibility.
