That's a possibility alright.  You should be able to instal the
linux-headers-386 package on the server and compile modules to run against
that kernel.  You shouldn't need the kernel itself installed.  Many
modules sources will assume you want it compiled against the current
running kernel so you probably have to pass some parameter to tell it to
use a different kernel source tree.
