I did something similar - I browsed the method and then from the message list menu/ more.../change sets with this method. If you can't find the change set, then it is likely that old change sets have been expunged from your image. This is a common space-saving technique when building images for general distribution (I think it is usually done for the images found on uiuc). The way around this is to start with an old image and get updates yourself rather than relying on someone else to package the image for you.
