lynx should be installed... not sure about links by default on RH 7.2.

Or if you know the address of a download, when the time comes that is, use wget.

I take it you've tried 'startx'? You're going to need to get X windows up and running.

I installed RH7.2 and X didn't work for a while. Did you configure X during installation? What video card are you using? (Mine was an Nvidia - getting drivers from their site solved my problem). What's the contents of your X config file?
