This site uses javascript, which is not supported by lynx. You can
submit your login information by changing the html source slightly, but
whether or not you will be able to do what you want after that depends
on how much javascript is used.

If you want to submit your login credentials, download the source for
the login page ("";),
then edit it, replacing "button" with "submit" where it says 
'<INPUT Type="button"'. Give it a name ending in ".html" or ".htm",
then access your local file with lynx. Make sure to keep the 
"<BASE ...>" statement at the top of the file.
