If the module is part of the current kernel you have in the Live CD then you can build it from the kernel source. Must use the exact same version the Live CD kernel is using. Or if it a seperate source you can download then again you need the kernel source present and then you can build the module and save it where you save local settings if you do or to a floppy or CD and load it after boot with the insmod command.
