Lightbulb command line web browser


I have installed a RH8.0 on a server and I am telnetting it remotely. How can I browse the web using command lines? I have been told that links or elink may work, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Are there any other ways or do I have to install elink?

Links (Links2) and lynx are usually common cli web browsers.
