If you had a file called "INSTALLATION" that explained how
to install for unix, you almost certainly downloaded the
wrong archive. You got the source code rather than the binary
distribution. There are several binaries for Win32 available.
Where did you get this one? You might start by reading:
"";. You can get a binary
from there. Also see: "";. There
is also a version compiled in Japan by Hiroyuki Senshu, but it is
easier to set up once you have another copy of lynx working, since it
defaults to a Japanese installation. Jim Spath's compilation has an
easy-to-follow set of instructions for installing on Win32.
