Seeking for a good RFC database

There are lots of very nice hyperlinked RFC databases around. I love the hyperlinked feature for its easy navigation between RFCs.

Now when I do tranings I want the same level of comfort, but rarely the classrooms have an active Internet connection.

Right now I have downloaded all RFCs in text format, but this is not very comfortable to work with.

I tried to steal a hyperlinked RFC database using Frontpage, set the depth level to 2 and tried to grab the start Page and all subpages. Even with a 2Mbits wire I have here it took eons to load the whole thing, and the download never got finished because after a while I always got disconnected by the remote servers. Frontpage does not have a feature to resume a failed download, so I had to start all over again. Always failed after hours of downloading. Probably they do this to prevent people like me from stealing their database :-).

So who can guide me to a RFC database I can download that meets my requirements? May not be web based (though I'd prefer such a solution because IE is available everywhere) but may also come in any database format with reader software. Should be regularily updated as well.

And, yes, I want it for free ....

There are plenty of tools to "grab" sites much better than front page. Look in www.winfiles.com (will re-route you to their new owner). I've used Site Grabber but there's bound to be something better by now.

There are tons of downloads on this site. No hits when specifying keywords like "grab" or "grabber". Is there any software you can recommend?

While those two seem not to work (one doesn't return anything but empty directories and comes with no usable documentaion, the other requires a java package I do not have) I found another program named "webcopier" that seems to do the job, at least it is still downloading right now :-)

Your comment put me into the right direction, thanks.
