As far as I know, no one has ever gotten this to work. If you have tried
this and were successful, please post to the list how you did this. The
DOS port of lynx is dependent on packet drivers which don't function
properly in a DOS box. I have not been able to get any of the
workarounds to function properly with lynx. Which packet drivers and
shims with which ppp or slip program actually yield a functioning lynx
in a DOS box under Windows 3.x?
