1. Add testing/unstable repos to your sources.list
2. Add the following line to the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02release
(if file doesn't exist yet, create it):
(you may use "stable" instead of "lenny" - that depends on what behavior you
expect when squeeze would release)
Basically that's all you need. Now apt (and aptitude, synaptic etc.) would
stick to lenny unless you ask it to do something else. With apt-* and aptitude,
you can use -t option to specify from which release you want package be
# aptitude install -t testing ping
