filename.part << partially downloaded files...

first off, thx to anyone who takes the time to help me. its you guys who make it possible for ppl like me to switch to linux . i was wondering... when i d/l domething (im using suse9.2 + kde) it saves it all as a whatever.part file, which seems logical to me, i assumed you could start off where you left if you get interrupted (like i just did). but... how do you start off from where you left off? i pointed it to the same directory and it just wrote over the old .part file starting anew. i also tried telling it to write over the .part file but that didnt work, it simply made a .part.part file!! help?

and i do know that file "extensions" mean nothing, so you dont need to tell me that again

I use kget which can stop/resume most downloads. I don't know of any firefox/mozilla extensions that can do this
