Linux requires a 386 CPU.  Remember Linus wrote it as a learning project to 
get to know the cool new features of the 386...

I know that older versions of BSD (don't know which versions tho) did run on 
286 machines .  I've read before of 286 mailservers running on some flavour 
of BSD.

Maybe try the BSD user-lists?
