Also can I do a "tab tab" to show all my commands and somehow redirect all this to a file ?    

Example:

l  "tab tab" will show me all the commands that start with "L".

elinks (version 0.10.6-1ubuntu3)  and lynx (version 2.8.5-2ubuntu1) are two text based WWW browsers available for Ubuntu Dapper Drake.
I'm not sure whether they are included in Ubuntu default installations but you can allways add more repositories to your package sources list.

Here's what are my repositories for Xubuntu/Ubuntu 6.0. :

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper universe
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper universe

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-security main restricted

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-security universe
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-security universe

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper multiverse

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://www.getautomatix.com/apt dapper main

I will check that.  The objective is to build a lamp server without any connection to anything.  After it is all working I want to mess with php in a company envirement that does not let "unautherized" machines on the network.  

I do testing of hardware for a living and they have a 3 foot tall stack of laptops that I can do anything I want as long as they are not connected to the network.
