1.0.5+ is the kernel driver version

2.4.22-dm-1.tar.bz2appliest to vanilla 2.4.22 kernel
redhat/fedora kernel has been modified from vanilla
either you are able to massage those patches or you use vanilla or you
bug fedora developers to patch their kernel for dm.

1.0.6 is for lvm 1, redhat lvm1 is heavily modified as well
if you devide for a vanilla kernel and want both lvm1 and lvm2 i;d
suggest using recent lvm tolls as well.
If you have not the skill to o all this, stay with fedora and wait for
them to upgrade
