I use the Download manager for X. Works very simple. You just drag or
copy & Paste a link onto it and it will download it. You can choose the
directory for each download you add. You can also add a whole list and
schedule downloads to start at a certain time.

Very similar to download managers available for Widoze.

It is included on the SuSE installation CD's (7.2 anyway) The package
name is 'nt' for some reason.
