Gnome 2 is due some time in the future. Apparently it's not too long now, but in the mean time, if you've got the bandwidth/patience, you could go for RH7.2 - RH7.1 was broken in many, many ways (the daftest one was the GCC...not a good thing to have break on a fresh install of a new distro...doh!).

Alternatively, there's Ximian Gnome...never tried it, so can't say much.
