You setup a web server on your computer.

Without more information, such as what operating system you are using, exact instructions are impossible.  If you use Windows, you may be able to use IIS.  But if you use Linux or XP Home, you'll probably have to use Apache (an excellent server, don't be mistaken).  Apache is available from www.apache.org.  There are MANY help files there for how to set it up.

Thanks leew, that's what I was looking for. One last question, how do I setup the page to where if they click on a link a program automatically starts to download?

any ol' link to a "non web page" file will initiate the download (or rather, the 'download/save or 'open') process.
<a href="/path/to/some/file.zip">download me</a>

so once you set up iis and find the home directory for your web site, stick something like this in it as "default.htm" along with the files.

<html>
<head>
  <title>My downloads</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>My Downloads</h1>
<ul>
  <li><a href="file1.zip">Download 1</a></li>
  <li><a href="file2.zip">Download 2</a></li>
  <li><a href="file3.zip">Download 3</a></li>
  <li><a href="file4.zip">Download 4</a></li>
  <li><a href="file5.zip">Download 5</a></li>
  <li><a href="file6.zip">Download 6</a></li>
</ul>
</body>
</html>
