it would be difficult to do on a ubuntu live cd as you would have to install a cross-compiler and the build tools inside the live cd environment.
you can apply the patches to that version only. if the patch is for 2.6.32, you can apply it to the most recent version of 2.6.32, which is 18.104.22.168 as of this writing according to kernel.org.
