Thanks Thorsten, 

I didn't install it myself, but I passed it on to my colleague who did. Many

You download the following two files:

Place both files in the C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32 or C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
directory (depends on where it was installed).

Then click on Start -> Programmes -> Command Prompt

A window with light grey text on black background
will appear, with a command prompt looking like

C:\> _

There, you enter the following lines:
 cd \windows\system32
 ren lynx-windows.lzh lynxw.lzh
 lha e lynxw

(If the directory where you placed the files is
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32, change that appropriately.)

Then, go into the system32 directory in Explorer,
you will find a file named Lynx.exe (or just Lynx,
depending on your setting). Click on it with the
RIGHT mouse button, hold that pressed, drag it to
the desktop and release it. A menu will pop open,
in which you select "Create shortcut here".
