I'm using the Lynx browser that comes with RedHat 5.0.
Does anyone know where files downloaded eg: *.mid *.zip are stored?

Thanks

Not sure off hand but you if you know the name of the file that you downloaded you can just type:

updatedb

followed by:

locate filename.zip

You should get a list of files matching your description from the locate command
