How to download items to desktop from Sharepoint site in bulk?

I need to download about 50 or so items from our Sharepoint site. There has to be a better way to download them in bulk without the use of 3rd party utilities or one-by-one. The server is using a remote SQL server for all data on this SP server, but I don't see a clear way to do this. Any suggestions?

The SP server is running Win2k3, and SP 2003.

Not exactly sure if it's the explorer view but I went into one of the folders and just did a search for all doc xls txt etc files and copied them to a local folder.  Our sharepoint site is fairly disorganized unfortunately so had to do some macguyering.

Thanks cjones!
