Debian - Can't find MySQL 5.5

Hi, I'm a relatively newbie to linux and have a Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) VM and wanted to upgrade it from MySQL 5.1 to 5.5, but when I do a:

"apt-get install mysql-server-5.5", I get a:

E: Unable to locate package mysql-server-5.5
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'mysql-server-5.5'

I've tried to do an "upgrade", I've updated everything else to the latest version (and it did allow me to update to the latest version of 5.1), but don't know how to proceed. I could download it from MySQL and install it, but I really don't want to have to go through a whole setup routine, editing configuration files and such, I'd like to just upgrade and hopefully be done with it.

This is what is in my Sources.list

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free


I'm sure there's something obvious I missing, but I'm still figuring everything out so don't assume anything :).

Thanks!

Guys, I figured it out. You need to add DotDeb:

deb http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org squeeze all
