Ok.  The default startup page for Lynx is the Lynx Enhanced Pages.  This 
can be changed in the master lynx.cfg file, which for example, is in 
/usr/local/lib on my Linux system.

In lynx.cfg, there is a line that looks like:

You could change this to the path to the local help files for lynx, or 
your bookmark file etc.

Also, you can start lynx with the place you want to go, ie:
would tell lynx to start at the Infoseek search engine.

If you come across a site that you want to visit in the future, press 'a' 
to 'A'dd to the bookmark file, then choose either D)ocument to save the 
location of the page that you are looking at, or L)ink to save a bookmark 
to the link that is currently selected.

Another starting point is 'i'.  This brings up the Internet Resources 

Hope this helps
