Keep in mind, a lot of us who need to download files from the web onto
servers, but aren't on the server itself (telneted in) usually resort to using
Lynx because of it's ease of use.  lynx http://whatever.com/  down down down
select file, download, install After Step.  There ARE reason to make your
site lynx viewable, and they are GOOD reasons :)
