    Code:
    man wget
    Will solve most of the queries.
    You can check out http://www.cs.duke.edu/~reynolds/gat/ for GUI scheduling.
    You can also check out curl for downloads
    Code:
    man curl
    for more

    Take a look at "prozilla" -> http://prozilla.genesys.ro/ ! I use it daily and its one of the best Linux download accelerators i have come across so far.

    Its run by command "proz"! It downloads the file in whatever directory u initiated the command. So to download all the files in one default directory , I did a little tweaking. I made a little shell script! U may use it too. Here it is...

    ************************************

    if [ -z $1 ]
    then
    echo "Enter Url !!"
    else
    cd /home/mediator/downloads
    proz $1
    fi

    **************************************

    "downloads" is the default directory here. U can change it to any other directory u create. Save the shell script as "resume" or whateva u like and place it in ur PATH. Then give the execution rights to it and run as "resume http://file_address" ! The speed it gives is just amazing. Try it out!
    Have fun! Happy Shell scripting!

    I have to check this up but maybe the following switch will work, just try
    -m
    --mirror
    Turn on options suitable for mirroring. This option turns on recursion and time-stamping, sets infinite recursion depth and keeps FTP directory listings. It is currently equivalent to -r -N -l inf --no-remove-listing.

    Covered in my previous post

    I don't think this can be done without shell scripting.

    Yea there are plenty of em, best being "Linux complete command reference", but its huge! Shell scripting is nothing but compilation of commands with appropriate parameteres and if-then-else etc blocks! Just google for it and u'll find it in plenty. Neways the non-pdf link given by @Jguru is appropriate and shud be more than enough.
