why so old? you can run modern linux distro's on a 386 as long as you
can live without mozilla

pine is non-free (or at least was) in the debian sense so alternatives
are offered. This is also where nano comes from which was started as
a replacement for pico the pine editor.
I haven't used netrik but like most old timers the web was textual
when i started using it so i have a soft spot for lynx. The current
best of breed text mode browser is links2 IMHO and I often use it with
a well configured SVGATextMode or FB console it's killer and with the
-g switch is graphical too.
I did a little work on a text browser last week and did some html
rendering in curses. I do some strange things when I am bored ;-)
