Looking for Blackdown JDK 1.1.x source code

Does anyone know where I can find the source code for Blackdown JDK v 1.1.x? I've been asked to write some code that has to be compatible with the Microsoft Java environment. It seems that their Java implementation stops at 1.1. I'm trying to do the best I can, but I'm pretty sure I'm using stuff I shouldn't.
The precompiled versions use very old C libraries, so I don't know if they will work well on a more recent system.
I also want to use JUnit, so if anyone knows which is the latest version to support that API, that would be a bonus.

JUnit I think won't work with 1.1 code.
Blackdown was just for Linux in case you don't know,
If the source isn't on their site you may be able to get it if you email them.
Sun have their 1.1 versions available for download still, also binary only:

Have you checked out Aspose?
