I don't know about RedHat, but Debian/ix86 has v0.30-all.

I switched to this driver on July 9, and since then I haven't seen any
problems. This is on an early 3c905 with 2.0.30.

Before that I used many other versions, including v0.39 and v0.41. All of them
had random Tx timeout problems, which could be solved by doing an ifconfig
