A couple of minutes with Google revealed the existence of
http://www.freebsdmirrors.org  where you can find out where various
older releases (including 2.1.7) can be found.

With such a small amout of RAM you might wish to consider running
NetBSD instead.  NetBSD generally puts more emphasis on being able to
run on low-end hardware, and I believe even the latest versions of
NetBSD can be installed with only 4MB RAM.
