You might find that logging out will kill yoru wget/ftp processes depending on how your system is configured. If this is the case then running nohup wget ... & often works.

So if I login...what should i do to get for example
ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dist...1.4-i486-1.tgz

I want it to be like a normal pc, I can go away, return later and resume my session from where I was.

then the next day i want to ssh the other pc and check if the download is already finished. like VNC on a windows pc.

I like to shh into my box from work - I run lynx browser on the host and have it download whatever. I have not had a problem yet.
Plus if your on the client pc you can surf and find the exact page to the download and then in the ssh session type:
lynx www.theurlofthedownload.com
and bingo your there! pressing D will download if the option is available. Lynx is really pretty amazing - just get to know how to use it.
Once the pc is downloading you can close your session.
