What program is this/what packages do you intend to install from Lenny? My advice would differ depending on what specific packages are in question...

Those older libboost packages don't seem to conflict with any packages in Debian Squeeze, so installing them should theoretically be safe. Just install them manually from http://packages.debian.org, and install them using
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i libboost-*.deb
