Wireless driver/kernel question

Hey guys, I have a kind of complicated question. I have a usb wireless card, a Belkin F5D7050v4000 which uses the zd1211rw driver, which i know has been included in the Linux kernel since version 2.6.18, but the specific device ID for my wireless dongle has only been in the kernel since version 2.6.20. Is there any way I can get Knoppix Linux with kernel 2.6.19 to use the driver for my device without having to reboot (since it's a live cd). Thanks everyone.
