lynx and ftp mystery

Maybe some of you will remember several months ago I had problems 
accessing the Fedora ftp content referenced in the speakup-modified howto. 
Well, the mystery of ftp and lynx has returned.

I did installs of FC2 on both my desktop and my laptop using the same set 
of installation isos. Yet on my laptop I can access and download from ftp 
sites using lynx, while on my desktop I cannot, though I can do so just 
fine with wget and links the chain. I have tried placing the .lynxrc from 
the laptop on my desktop and have also tried placing the .mailcap from my 
laptop on my desktop--to no avail. The /etc/mailcap should be and appears 
to be the same on both machines.
I haven't edited my lynx.cfg on either machine; my firewall setup is the 
same on both machines.
Any ideas of other files to look at?
