Yes; or compile your own copy of the new version in the shell account,
if you are allowed to.

It should. Maybe there is something wrong with the ISP's lynx 2-7.

Normally no special configuration is needed.

It should work as you did it.
What do you get when you try -source - some error messages, or
nothing at all?
You may want to try -trace together with -source and see what it says.
Also try combining -source with -dump (this is just a wild guess).
Is there anything special about the URL (or filename)? For example,
is it compressed?
There are other programs that can be used to "get the source" of
Web pages, for example a program called "wget". If you only want
to retrieve source, lynx may be overkill.
