I have searched around and most lowmem linux projects, like this one,
think that extreme lowmem is a 486 with 8MB.
Have you checked BasicLinux? Homepage:
The "DOS version" of the current release claims:
Intel 386 or compatible
3 mb RAM
DOS (or Windows 95/98 in DOS mode)
This version of the distribution is unzipped onto a DOS partition.
(I have not tried this version, but have run prior BasicLinuxes in slightly
bigger machines and they have generally delivered their promises).
ZipSlack (a Slackware variant) also claims to run in 4M.
