I want to install FreeBSD 6.1 on my system, but I only
have a version 5.3 CD.  I can tell sysinstall to get
6.1 instead of 5.3 via FTP (under "Options, Release
name"), but I read that using an old sysinstall to
install a new version is a bad idea.  I cannot figure
out how to obtain a new sysinstall without making boot
floppies (I have no floppy drive nor a CDRW).  Can I
install 5.3 and then somehow upgrade via FTP to 6.1? 
Or download the new sysinstall to my 5.3 installation,
run it, and install 6.1 instead?  What's the best
