I like the redhat distribution best, because it can be upgraded easily.  It can be downloaded from ftp.redhat.com or goto www.redhat.com.  It is better to buy a cd set though.  It will run you $15 or so compared to hundreds of megs of downloads.  The official redhat cd is $50.  The windows 95 look alike is fvwm-95 and is included in the latest versions of redhat.
I don't know about olwm. If the source is available freely, it prabably is available for linux.
