Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You want to download all the GIFs from a directory on an HTTP
server. You tried wget http://www.server.com/dir/*.gif, but that
didn't work because HTTP retrieval does not support globbing. In
that case, use:
More verbose, but the effect is the same. -r -l1 means to retrieve
recursively, with maximum depth of 1. --no-parent means that ref‐
erences to the parent directory are ignored, and -A.gif means to
download only the GIF files. -A "*.gif" would have worked too.
man pages are not exactly light reading, but they usually have the answer.
Brother I have already tried what u had mentioned...It works for certain sites...Indeed I use this for downloading entire site..
check my first post..
Here some permission problem.. "403 forbidden"...

Removing www.mikeswanson.com/wallpaper/images/index.html since it should be rejected.

Oops. I guess we both screwed up a little then.
Damn font makers need to make a good default font that you can tell the difference between | and l and 1. -_-
But, again, note the 403 forbidden error message you got. With the way mikeswanson.com has it's folders setup you can't view/download from a directory unless you know the exact filename you want to download. (Sometimes not even then.)
