LiveCD rebuild help requested

(I sent this before but it may not have arrived)

Hello, I am new to LFS though have had a few
years experience with Linux (Slackware). I would
like to use LFS LiveCD as a standalone rescue
disk, and it works fine on my system except for
the network card. In my case I have an ethernet 
adapter which connects to a router
(and through that to the internet). The ethernet
adapter is the onboard Attansic L1 Gigabit.
For my Slackware linux system I compiled the driver 
supplied by ASUS as a module: atl1.o.

The ethernet adapter on my ASUS m/b is not
recognized by LiveCD. So I would like to be able 
to rebuild the LFS LiveCD to include the Attansic 
ethernet driver.

I followed the procedure described in the 
lfscd-remastering-howto up to the point:

>In the chroot, change the current directory to /build, and install any
>additional packages you want. Modify other files as necessary.

This is where I am uncertain how to proceed: specifically
how can I compile and install the Attansic driver for the 
LiveCD kernel (2.6.16)? As far as I can determine there are 
no compilers included with the CD. And what about header 
files and so on?

Can someone point me to some documentation, or to
a thread in this list which describes in more detail
what is meant by the phrase "install any additional 
packages you want"?

Thanks for your assistance,
Roger Young.
