you need to specify a local file as your starting file in  lynx.cfg :
eg  file://yourdir/bookmark.file  (whatever the correct name for it);
you may have to fiddle with the slashes a bit to get it right:
check in  lynx.cfg  & at  doslynx .
alternatively, you can specify a remote site you KNOW will be active,
eg a local university department.
