I came across Scott Taylor’s site which mentions his adventure with MtXinu (https://www.retrosys.net/)!  I had asked a few years ago (February 2017?) about locating a set
Of this to no avail, but thanks to Scott the binary set is now available.

There is some additional documentation to be found here.

The floppy drive like 386BSD is super weak and I had no luck with Qemu.  VMWare worked fine to install.  The VMDK will run on Qemu as low as 0.90 just fine.
I haven’t tried the networking at all, so I don’t know about adapters/protocol support.  I’ve been using a serial line to uuencode stuff in & out but it’s been stable.
