Need old Linux distro

I'm trying to run a binary that was made in 2000 or 2001. It's giving me an error message:

"Incorrectly built binary which accesses errno or h_errno directly. Needs to be fixed."

I posted a few days ago and received the suggestion that I get an old distro to run the binary. How can I get a distro that goes back to 2000 or 2001?

I have RedHat 7, 7.2 and SUSE 9.1

I can send copies if you pay the postage. Send me a PM or private e-mail

How do we even know he is using RedHat or SuSE? He doesn't say what distro he is using. I have Windows 95 on CD ...
