(Lynx is a text based web browser, btw. It comes with most distributions but
I bet you actually can face a hand made install, or that you can find PPC
packages of it.)

I assume you'r trying to do the magic helix trick with lynx...
If you don't want to get lynx, you should be able to go to
and download the helix installer and use that or just download all of the
packages and install them (I forget what packaging system LinuxPPC uses but
you should have documentation on installing packages somewhere.)

I hope that helps.
