Your best bet is to get an IBM Auto 16/4, although any IBM card should work. I am currently using an Auto 16/4 with RedHat 4.2 but the support for them (indeed any TR card which uses the TROPIX chipset) has been around for quite a while.

Just make sure that the card is correctly configured - ie that it has a valid IRQ and base memory address. The defaults should work unless you have lots of peripherals in your box.

The 3COM token ring card should also work but you might need to configure it to work in IBM mode.
