There's quite a lot of momentum behind subversion, and it's very likely
that after it turns 1.0 supported packages will turn up in the linux
distros (there already are packages in RedHat/Fedora Core - just out of
date versions).

You could try WBEL (http://www.whiteboxlinux.org/). It's a RHEL3
compatible system rebuilt from RH rpms with the trademarks removed.
It's binary compatible with RHEL and has isos freely available; packages
built on WBEL should be fine for RHEL.
