I believe the kernel has changed since those versions of DSL, so you'd likely run in to problems trying to get the compiled software from them to run on the latest DSL release.

Find the source release and compile it yourself. The page on making a tar.gz MyDSL extension in the DSL Wiki describes the basic process of compiling software. There are some extensions in the MyDSL respository with the software for a compiling environment.

If you can find a package for Debian 3 "woody", that could be installed on DSL too, but it doesn't seem to be in the Debian package archive (http://archive.debian.net).
