Since you mention you'll be running Debian squeeze (stable), I'll
outline one possible approach which involves a single server.

request-tracker3.8 is the Debian package of RT 3.8. It is in squeeze.
request-tracker4 is the Debian package of RT4.0. It is in squeeze-backports.

You can install both of these side by side, and have both running
alongside each other, as long as you use the mod_fastcgi or mod_fcgi
mode, rather than the mod_perl mode.

[disclosure: I'm the Debian maintainer of those packages]
