386 + 2mb ram


Hi, I've spent the past 2 days looking for a distro that will run on a 386 with less than 2 megs of ram. I'm beat and I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a distro that'll run on this hardware. I've tried smalllinux and I think that it'd work but after I put the root disk it errors and hangs.

hardware:
cdrom - no
floppy -3.5 + 5.25
harddrive - old 100mb

Thanks for reading this,
Kyle
