Debian Squeeze Host

It appears the template in the sources lxc package is lenny and I have 
solved what needs to be done to get networking working correctly with 
this lenny version, BUT I NEED SQUEEZE in my vm's, not lenny.

I have been searching for how to change to squeeze, but the solutions I 
have found on the web so far end in failures for me. For example, the 
fix I found here ( http://www.jotschi.de/?p=554 ) got further than 
anything else I have found so far, and really had my hopes up......but 
ended like this:

root at myserver:/usr/lib/lxc/templates# ./lxc-debian squeeze vm103 103
debootstrap is /usr/sbin/debootstrap

mount -t proc proc /proc
Failed to download the rootfs, aborting.
Failed to download 'debian base'
failed to install debian
root at myserver:/usr/lib/lxc/templates#

I don't understand enough of the script and what needs to happen to fix 

What are you guys using???  And are their detailed step by step 
instructions I can use to do it?

Thanks! :)
