Categories is what you are looking for (free)
And as stated, CategoriesSB is an add-on which speeds up the folders.

It should be noted that it also gives the folders a much more native feel, with SpringBoard-like anti-aliased text, etc. CategoriesSB is well worth the money for anyone who uses Categories.

When I went to purchase this tweak it is listed in Cydia but the load screen redirects me to FolderEnhancer.

That tweak is not available for 3.1.3 as CategoriesSB was.
Is there an alliterative workaround?

This thread is about 2 years old

What are you trying to do with folders, add more than 12 icons ?
If so, Infinifolders (not free) will do this

I didn't want to start my own thread... I have an iPhone2G I am trying to add folders to.
It is on 3.1.3
"Categories" is an option although a poor one if I can't also purchase "CategoriesSB" as an add-on that allows the first tweak to run more like an IOS feature.
"CategoriesSB" is no longer being supported (although why it is offered in Cydia then is beyond me) and within the description page refers to "Folders" as an alternative.
"Folders" tweak isn't supported with 3.1.3 leading me right back to the starting gate.

I was hoping there is another workaround and/or app or tweak that will equally get the job done.

CategoriesSB is still supported because people purchased it an are still using it.

I still have it on my 5.01, the tweaks don't work, but you still have the folder icons you can use in the "folder icons" tweak

Could be, (didn't for me) ^^

Found a better fix though! Lots of looking around...
Added this repo: http://www.repod00r.com and found a tweak (whited00r 5.0) that allows me to add IOS5 features to 3.1.3
(iPhone2G had to be booted twice after install!)
Within that is the folders option.
