What different versions of UNIX are there?

Aside from the normal Linux distros, OS X, and the BSDs, what other forms of UNIX are there? I want to try one on a very old 75mhz box I have. Thanks in advance.

Minix will run on a 286...
Linux will generally run on a 386 and above...

You will not want graphical systems (X windows) on a slow machine unless you are very patient.
