I'm looking for a copy of 386BSD Unix... I know it's a free operating system, but the homepage is nonexistent, and I can't find it anywhere. It's free, so it shouldn't be that hard. Can anyone help me with this? In a couple downloadable files or packages, rather than in a huge messy FTP directory, would be most preferable. But at this stage, anything will do.
Mostly, I was looking for a free BSD Unix that would run on my older computer [486DX-33, 24 MB RAM, about 200 MB disk space that I could reserve to a partition for Unix]. I don't know of FreeBSD or BSDi or OpenBSD or NetBSD or whatever would run on it.

Have you tried http://www.freebsd.org ?

Yes, but aren't FreeBSD and 386BSD different? I'm looking for 386BSD specifically, not FreeBSD.
