Question Wget command options help???

Hello Everyone!

I just started to use wget to leach websites. Unfortunately, I am unable to find the right command options to force it to download an entire site. So far I am only able to get it to download the index.html for the sites. I have read the manpages and documentation, but there is nothing in there about this problem that I could find. I guess I would like for wget to grab something from the entire domain name. I.E. Therefore it would download or mirror the entire website, all directories and all files. Im sure its just a simple little command options, but for the life of me I cant seem to find it! Please help!

wget -r <URI> should do it. This functionality is referred to in the manpage as recursive downloading.
