I thought that's how Lynx was supposed to work.  Are you using
-show_cursor or not?  With -show_cursor, your cursor will be at the
current link whenever there is one on the screen.  This helps me use
Vocal-Eyes screen reader with Lynx in a DOS box under Win95, but it was
also useful when I connected to Lynx on a shell account with a modem
program or a telnet program.
