another thought to try, in addition to the change to the show_kb_rate
might be to use a program such as wget in the background if lynx has
been configured to allow the use of external programs. If so, a line
in your lynx.cfg file such as the following could do what you want. 

EXTERNAL:http:wget -q %s &:TRUE

The file will download in the background, and you will not have to
see the progress indicated. Another benefit will be that you can
continue to work via telnet without having to wait. Good luck.
