Hey, I was just wondering how I could make something available for download on my website. If any of you know and could tell me I'd appreciate it.

just to be clear: any file that is in a public directory on a webserver and has world readable permissions and is not hidden behind some server level authorization will be available for "download" (that is to say available to be copied from the server to the client). all you need to do is link to the file (or make the URL known). how the client handles in incoming data is up the user agent (browser). if you wish to force a download file dialog box then use the script that degsy pointed out.
