Installing Squeeze kernel in Lenny system?


Was wondering if I can upgrade my kernel to squeeze without affecting or hurting my Lenny system?

I want to upgrade the kernel, but leave the system as stable lenny

I know the more recent kernels have better wireless detection,etc

thanks

I wouldn't bother with trying to install the kernel from Squeeze.
Grab a more up to-date kernel from Backports:

http://packages.debian.org/lenny-bac...32-bpo.3-amd64

Here's a link to Backports:
