First, let's assume that it is a map that Kotor Tool supports. You can check this by using the Tools | Show Maps supported by Module editor
Find the name of the module you want to work with in the treeview under Kotor I(I) | RIMs | Modules
. Right click on it and select Extract for Module Editing...
In the Resource Type Selector
, uncheck everything in the right column (only Doors and Placeables are pre-checked, normally), then click the OK
Now select where the module will be extracted to, then click the OK
Finally, a dialog box will come up asking if you want the .GIT cleaned of all non-extracted entities. Click the Yes
You should now be able to launch the Module editor and open the folder (your module's "project folder") and see the module. It will be completely empty. If you build the module (F5 key or menu item on the File menu), you'll be prompted (once) for the output path for the resulting .mod file. I like to have them go right into the game's override folder, to make testing easier. Now you just need to load a saved game, then warp to the name you gave to the .mod file to see the results.
