This is brief enough to not be clear, EITHER.

I think Dired is useful on Unix; don't know about the other ports.  You
will find most of the information you want in lynx.cfg and userdefs.h.
Basically hit a "file://localhost/" URL or `g'oto "." (for your $HOME
directory) or any file on your file system.  That will automatically
put you in Dired mode.  Pressing `f' should then present the menu, i.e.,
you need to be in Dired mode before the `f' command will work.  Also
note that once in Dired mode, key mappings change, e.g., `u' is "upload",
not "back to previous page".

If you don't like the documentation, you are encouraged to write it.
Lynx-dev survives on volunteers.  Perhaps "users" should be spelt "you-sers".
