<A HREF=download.php/whatever.jpg?filename=whatever.jpg>Download

--------- download.php -----------------
  header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
  header("Content-length: " . filesize("/path/to/$filename"));

Some stupid browsers will *INSIST* on using the URL to "guess" what kind of
file it is, and what default name to prompt with, no matter *what* headers
you send.  That's why the funky extra whatever.jpg is between the / and the
? in the link.

There are more headers like Content-disposition to convince even more
browsers to do the right file name in the prompt.
