tinyX uses the xlib5 and a.out format. Another distribution at sunsite I
was looking at is minilinux. It is a complete linux distribution with an
X server (I don't know which but probably svga), and it fits of 5 disks.

I haven't downloaded or tried it yet, but I was toying with the idea over
the summer before the RedHat decision was made.
