People have pointed locations for mirrors that you can use anyway, but for
documentation's sake...

cd /usr/src && mkdir /tmp/installsets && RELEASEDIR='/tmp/installsets' make release

Will create install sets in /tmp/installsets.

You can make your life easier if you import your patches in a local CVS
tree and manage your code that way. I expect they would all install cleanly
against 1.5BETA, since the changes are minimal, as others said.
