A 386 (even SX) with 2MB of memory should run the DOS port of Lynx.
A 386 (even SX) with 4MB of memory definitely will run the Linux port.
(It would thrash badly in 2MB, but it might still be useable if you
were careful to construct a very clean configuration.)
You will need someone to provide PPP access to you.

Written using a 386 SX/25, with 6MB, running Linux.
