Note that what you want is what Lynx calls Win32.  Windows 98 does not need or 
want a binary that is advertised as a DOS version.  Doug Kaufman has explained 
all that.

The best summary I know of at the moment is the one from Doug:

 Doug Kaufman's Web Site - DOS ports

   [...] If you
   are trying to run lynx under Windows95, Windows98, or WindowsNT, this
   is not the site you want. For Windows ports of lynx, see Wayne
   Buttles' site, Jim Spath's site, or the binary from Senshu

Doug's site is the best explained one that I found with links to all the above 

On the other hand. read further down the thread

for discussion of yet another option using Cygwin.
