The lynx386 binaries need to be run from DOS, rather than windows.
They won't work in a DOS window. There are 3 different packages of
lynx for DOS, each with its own hints on how to set this up. Some
are more complete as far as the helper applications go. You might
want to look at blynx or the package from my site (links to both from The blynx package is
fairly complete. Mine gives links to the additional programs you need
to download. You may find the batch files and readme files helpful
in getting started. The packet driver used is generally the DOSPPP
program. See the file LYNXBAT.BAT in my distribution for an ideas
about how to get it all to work together.
