For the first two I have tried installing from usb stick using
unetbootin to create it.
I don't know but that may not work since recently when the images are
not usb bootable without modification. I would guess that unetbootin
(whatever that is) will try to create a usb boot the old way and fail.
Unetbootin works fine with Squeeze, you can find it in the Squeeze repos.
See 4.3.1. Preparing a USB stick using a hybrid CD or DVD image
You shouldn't need to use special tools to build usb boot images anymore.
The first I have also burned to cd.
That should definitely work.
Each time I try installing it will fail at retrieving packages, saying
that lots of packages are corrupted.
This makes me think you have chosen a broken mirror. Try chosing a
different mirror site. Or that your network is causing bit errors for
some reason. (Have seen that in the long past.)
