2. Add these lines to /etc/apt/preferences.d/backports (or

WARNING TO STEP TWO: This will make all packages from backports have
same priority as packages from main repositories, so ALL packages will
be installed from backports if they are newer than the ones at main
repositories. If you are using Squeeze for stability, you might not
want this.
I'm quite convinced it's safer to run testing instead. Backports is not
(and never was) intended to be used like this. For example some packages
in backports may not work well together (or at all) even if they do so
in testing.

Kind regards,
