Get the source (1) for the module follow the instructions on building it, you 
will need to have the kernel headers installed for your kernel for the build 
command to work properly. Once you have the k8temp.ko you can either keep 
using the insmod k8temp on every boot to load or simply copy the the .ko file 
to the /lib/modules/2.6.18-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/hwmon/k8temp.ko and run 
depmod -a then put k8temp on a line by itself in your /etc/modules as 
suggested above and it will be loaded on every boot.
