Hmmm.. this is why I suggested getting the latest standard kernel for 2.4
as it'll have the latest fixes already applied.  It doesn't have to be a
RedHat blessed kernel, ya know :)  The kernel is still just the kernel
reguardless of which distro it came with.

As Patrick mentioned in another reply, there isn't any official SRPM, but
the .tar source is readily downloadable and buildable from sistina.com.
If you really prefer a SRPM, I have one for LVM 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 that I
put together for a PPC port.  It's not from Red Hat, but it should build
reguardless (or at least with a minimum of hacking).  You are welcome to
download and try build it.  Let me know.  If you aren't familiar with
build SRPMs, then I highly suggest going for the .tar instead.
