Download MINIX 3.1.6 for Linux – MINIX 3 is a new open-source operating system designed to be highly reliable and secure. – Softpedia

To run MINIX 3, you need a PC driven by a 386, 486, or Pentium CPU or compatible. The standard configuration requires 16 MB of RAM. An 8-MB version is also available, but it is slower due to a smaller buffer cache. Since the distribution comes on a live CD, you can test it without allocating any hard disk space, but for a hard disk installation, 200 MB is needed as a minimum, 400 MB minimum if you want all the sources.

I just MIGHT be able to find a machine that fits these parameters.  Tried version 2.X some time back and was less than impressed, but as they said tis a teaching distro.  Interested to see how the 3.1.6 works out.  Especially with the requirements.  Wonder what programs have been ported?
