Assembly version August 25th 1991. - comp.os.minix newsgroup.
C version  October 5th 1991 - Linux Bible 8th edition.

I started using Red Hat with version 6.2.  For a while the server I put it
on just sat there until I got around to making it a mail server.  I still
have the server but it was upgraded to BSD at some point.  I doubt I have a
backup anymore
