You shouldn't be using 'sun-lamp'. You should be using 'ftp.netbsd.org'
which is actually sun-lamp. That's a semantics thing because some day
lamp will just go elsewhere.. ie: mail.netbsd.org is actually at MIT.
Lamp has been down for 4 days because none of us live in berzerkely and
no one has been in the lab that the machine lives in to reboot it.
You could try one of the places that mirrors ftp.netbsd.org like
ftp.iastate.edu which conveniently is in your state.

Physical proximity is not necessarily relevant on the internet. For
example, Theo lives down the street from me (about 2 miles) but packets from
my basement to his basement go through New-York and Cleveland.
