There is a source code version floating around.  All you have to do is
compile it.

Also, I think it is included in newer Alan Cox kernels.

that I purchased, but I refuse to run Red Hat on them.
Just take a look at any debian mirror.

Besides that, Dave Miller has experimental drivers, which will go into
the kernel.
