The problem is when I check the "I agree" button, the form_submit is not enabled. 

Is there a way to make this work in lynx? I tried with lynx-2.8.5-28.1 and 2.8.7.

The webpage is, unfortunately, written in such a way that it depends on _javascript_ (instead of using progressive enhancement[1]). Lynx doesn't support _javascript_ and I'm not aware of any extensions that add such support. I vaguely recall a discussion a while ago that suggested the architecture of Lynx didn't lend itself to adding JS support (or rather, DOM support which most in-browser JS depends on).

You could use a proxy server that rewrites the form to remove the disabled attribute on the way through.
