I'm relatively experienced and just reading the options for wget gives me a headache....
Here is all I think a newbie really needs to know:

Download a file:

wget url

Options:

-O filename
Specify the file to download to, instead of wget figuring it out from the URL.

-c
Continue from a partially downloaded file with the same name in the same directory.
