No, it won't. Just do the following:

# cat >> /etc/apt/preferences << EOF
Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian,a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 102
EOF

# echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian experimental main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

# apt-get update

# apt-get install linux-image-2.6.36-trunk-686

This should prevent any unwanted upgrades from experimental and still
allow you to hand-pick kernels from there. The installation updates one
additional package that should not hurt you. Other than that running a
squeeze with .36 should be fine.

Best regards
Uwe
