Ebay??? Seriously, you're going to struggle finding it. I think linuxiso.org had back to 7.0 or something like that, but they're updating their site. Now they only seem to have 9.0. You might email them and see if they have old copies on their server somewhere.

Any particular reason for such an old distro?

Why not get a newer distro thats designed to work on old hardware. There are lots to choose from e.g. Slackware, Vector Linux, Damn Small etc.
