need a "download all" script

P: n/a
Hello:

Our HR dept wants to allow users to download various HR forms from our
comp intranet. But since there are over 20 forms, I need to allow
users to select the files they want and then download the selected
files using a single click to "Download All" button. How can I do
this? Is there some canned script that would do this? Is this even
possible with a client side script?

Thanks.

PS. I am new to scripting :(

You will need a server-side script, too.
Or have them use FTP.

Do you have server side scipting available (e.g. php), if so I would
do this server side.

This would be more of a server-side issue. Anyway, keep it simple:
provide all the forms in an (additional) zip-file.
