You seem to be doing a good job researching on your own. I'm sure many here remember this old distro, but finding help to run it will be a challenge, since it's been abandoned for years.
Googling "Yggdrasil" brings up info on the creator, and the company that put it out, I would try to find out how to contact the originators and see if the have any links to the original docs for the project.
