Make a backup copy your original /etc/mandrake-release file.
Then replace the contents of /etc/mandrake-release with

RedHat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot) for i686


Your RC now thinks it's running RH 6.2, so you get an Evolution Snapshot channel.

(The snapshots are only made for RH 6.2, RH 7.0, and Debian, so you have to fool RC into thinking you're running one of these distributions. Of course, you also don't get to see the Mandrake-specific update/fix files this way - for those, you'll still need to use Mandrake-update.)

If you don't want to change this file, you could also download the snapshots by hand, and install that way. Just be sure to get the RH 6.2 snaps.
