Using backport Debian 6 ( Squeeze )

Hii All ,

I want to add my /etc/apt/sources.list an old debian 6 backport , my goal is to upgrade kernel to 3.1.* or around that .

I believe Squeeze is no longer supported. You may be able to find archive package repos but your best and right thing to do is upgrade to wheezy or jessie asap.
