The easiest way is to put the sid and experimental repositories in your sources.list. Once you have done this apt-get update will get a list of what is now available. Go to Synaptic and select the relevant package. Once it is install change your sources.list back to squeeze. That is what I have done when people want G-3 on Squeeze.

Before I forget you do need to watch what installing G-3 will pull in with it. You can end up with a system that is basically NOT Squeeze and is also not supported with security updates.
