What is the recommended way to handle squeeze-proposed-updates?


I had to add the squeeze-proposed-updates repos to my sources.list after learning about the intel 855gm bug in squeeze that requires a fix from the proposed updates section.  After apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, 13 packages were updated/upgraded including apt.  Am I supposed to keep the proposed updates repos active in sources.list for the life of squeeze, or do something else?  What if I comment it out now?  I want this to be a stable system.  This is a brand new area for me so any help is appreciated.  Also, after doing this, the bug in Squeeze is fixed, but after I boot into Windows 7 on the dual-boot machine and reboot into Squeeze, it passes the Grub splash screen and then some tests until it gets to the section dealing with the drives/devices and completely freezes with blinking cursor and no activity.  A hard shut down is required.  Anyone else experienced this?

Thank you,
