Make a 30 Mb file available for download by web surfers

I would like to make several files available to web surfers. What is the easiest way to set it up so a web surfer could click on a link and have the ability to download the file?

Thank you,

Its the same as any hyperlink. Most web browsers will default to downloading a file they don't know how to interpret. Essentially you can just:

<a href="">This file will download</a>
