Use the Sun Download Manager, It is a java program and works well for me.

Cons: If your a GPL nazi then you won't like this bc it's not under the GPL license. It is free to use though

wget will also work very well, but it is command line only

did you look at wget
you can resume with this...and don't get tricked into thinking that them download accelerators work, cause plain and simple they don't.....so this is an option for you for resuming already started downloads.

wget does the job nicely for me.

I have seen ProZilla recommended for high speed connections.

I just ran across ProZilla today. Could someone tell me if this one works, because I need to to download the fltk libs (long process!) to make it work, if it's any good.

Open an x terminal.
cd to your download directory
wget -c <url of file>
