404 error, but I presume that you don't really mean something at
server.com, you're just using it in a bad example.  Server.com actually
exists.  Use example.com for examples, it's set up for that purpose.  We
can't tell what your problem is from that faked address.

Try:  lynx --head http://example.com

(substituting the real address), and tell us what you get back.  I
suspect that the script doesn't present the right MIME types, or perhaps
does so inconsistently.
