I think Slackware does and I know Debian does out of the box. Even a
late-gen kernel can be built to run in small memory, but you'll probably
want an older distribution anyway, in order to get a userland
lightweight enough to run in < 8MB of memory.
Unless you need something unique to Linux, I'd suggest NetBSD or
OpenBSD for small-memory systems.
