lenny upgrade - but not to squeeze?


Now when new stable debian is squeeze I was wondering how do I apply updates to my lenny distro?
I just want to apply all updates available for lenny, but DO NOT WANT to upgrade my lenny to squeeze. Usually I was doing
apt-get dist-upgrade
But now when the squeeze is out I'm not sure.
How do I apply all updates available to lenny, but do not upgrade to squeeze ?

Keep your sources.list in "lenny", if you don't want to change it to "oldstable", and do your updates as you always would.
