download manager for gnome


hey boys and girls...

i hate to ask such a newbie question (especially with my # of posts so high but)

ive just come out of my minimalistic phase, installing bare minimum,
launching X only when absolutly needed, and even then using iceWM with non
of the trimmings....

anyway, now im giving the oposite a try... GNOME......
anyway,

the easy question that i should be able to solve all by myself.....

is there a graphical download manager for gnome ?
and whats it called ?

i found one called kget ( a kde wraper for wget )
but it wants me to install too much kde stuff just for a download program.

any idea's ?

Is the download manager that comes with Mozilla/Netscape not sufficient for your needs? Or are you looking for something different than that?

im using firebird.

im planning to download some HEAVY files (linux iso's)
which take 36 hours each on my 56k connection
(lol, yeah, im a student, too poor for broad-band)

so i need the resume support, plus i need reliability....
i know how to use wget, and its great....
but basically after years of ugly ugly windows, then command line in linux, im trying to get my linux looking all pretty

a gnome wrapper for wget would be nice
but cant find any.
