Sorry, that's not possible if you only have the Ubuntu Desktop LiveCD; this is because the LiveCD does not contain the actual .deb packages but instead contains the compressed image of a full Ubuntu install, which is simply unpacked to your hard disk when you install it.

To install a CLI version, you will need the Server or Alternate CDs, or use the minimal "net install" CD.
