how to install from snapshots page


I would like to install a certain linux (Debian Squeeze) kernel version (+patches and updates), preserved on the snapshots page (http://snapshot.debian.org/).

To be clear, we definitely need to install from a snapshot and not just an earlier stable release or kernel version.

How do I install from a snapshot? In other words, how do I get my install disk--or the netinstall routine, to point to the snapshot repositories? This of course has to happen on install--before sources.list is available.

Is the solution to tell initramfs to look in the snapshot repositories?
