I checked by that link just now. It was the following mail:

Subject: Re: NetBSD-current? Where?
as for more recent snapshots, i've got a few that you can get to at
which are (a) for i386 only and (b) don't include source. you can
easily get the source, though, by checking out a tree from the anoncvs
server with the same date as the snapshot.
I checked up that link just now, and it wasn't working. I found another
mail, though, and it gave a link to an ftp site containing -current, but
said that it had KAME stuff in it. I don't have network access on the
machine that I plan to install this ... having KAME in it won't be a
problem as such, I hope ?
BTW, in case I were to download the files using the above mentioned link
(the one posted by Andrew), then would I need to get the sources
separately ? And even if I have to, then I don't have cvs access -- is
there any other way to download the sources on one machine (tarballs or
something), so that I can move them to the NetBSD machine.

Yes it has. Thank you. :)
