I am a new Lynx user. OS - Win98

I had the same problem many beginners do, with the bookmark file ending up
in the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Based on another user's suggestion,
I changed my lynx.bat file to read:

  set term=vt100
  set home=g:\lynx
  set temp=c:\temp 

// This is strange but it works. The bookmark file ends up in g:\lynx\temp. //

  set lynx_cfg=g:\lynx\lynx.cfg
  g:\lynx\lynx.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

That solved the bookmark problem,
but now the program will not create an options file.
I get two error messages when I press "o":
  "Alert! Unable to open tempfile."
  "Alert! LYNXOPTIONS:/"

If I do not set a temp file path or set it as g:\lynx\temp,
both the bookmarks file and the options file end up in C:\Windows\Temp.
I have my bookmark file in g:\lynx\temp.
I would like my options file in g:\lynx\options'
or even in the root folder lynx.

It would be very helpful to show on your site 
the best way to set up the batch file for Win9X
and also explain why it is set up that way.
I can't imagine anyone wanting to keep their bookmarks and options
in their Windows Temp file! To me, this problem comes under "beginner" stuff.  

Thanks for listening!
