I suspect that your friend wants a solution rather than a discussion of
packet drivers. I would suggest that they download the latest lynx
binary distribution from my website. It has a README.DOS file that gives
URLs for getting packet drivers. What they need depends on whether they
are on a network, or making a PPP connection over a dialup line. Some
folks have found the setup in the package from my site confusing
(although it is quite flexible). If they have a usual configuration of
DOS, it may be easier to use the bobcat386 setup, with the latest
