I dont understand how to do DOWNLOAD?

Hello guys i am new...well not that new any more since I use mandrake 9.1 on my box and i love it!

I just dont understand how to do the download of a distro....see this is my confusion, i go to a mirror site and i click on the download link and the next thing i see is folders....for example:

can someone tell me what am i suppose to do next.....lets say i am running windows (we have t1 at work and network is under xp pro) am i suppose to right click on the icon folder and save it in a folder?

or if i am running mandrake using mozilla save to a folder and burn it from there?

i really would like to download slackware 9.1 from there site but when i see the parent dircectory i dont know in which order to download?

please help.....and thanks a lot for feed back...

you can get slackware here:

or through one of the mirrors here:

you just drill down in the folders until you get to the iso images, for example:

then dload the ones you want -- in this case, slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso and -install-d2.iso. pretty easy.
