Found a LOT of possible ones here:

Search results page, 1st of 3.  Yes, it's a very long URL, so
try not to copy it in wrapped form if you can avoid it.  Hope
at least one of these helps.

Yes, sorry to hear about your lost shell.

Since Lynx is ported to DOS/Windows, are there others?  Vi?  Tin?
Using a local DOS shell might be a viable alterative [or installing
Linux if you really want to take the plunge].  Sorry, I'm on a
Mac, so this is all a bit outside my field.  FreeBSD has stable
kerels and booters that will run on Macs, but I wouldn't know
where to start.

This might help [a korn shell for DOS is mentioned]:

   Linkname: The FDISK.COM DOS Internet Pages
