Allow downloads from local intranet zone

I'm running into a problem with users trying to pull documents from Microsoft Sharepoint.  We have severla lists with attached PDF documents.  The problem is they are prohibited form downloading and this operation is treated as a download.  I was wondering if there was a GPO to allow or modify the internet settings for the local intranet zone.  I would need it to work for iE6 on Windows 2000 and XP as well as for IE7 on XP.  I would like to avoid using the import security zone gpo if possible for IE6 on W2K since this would require me to configure a workstation exactly how I want every zone to apply this.

I dont have access to ad in front of me but what do you think about this.

Through group policy add your sharepint server to the trusted sites zone and then set the option to allow download from trusted sites.

Someone messed with Local Intrane tsettings and set downloads to disabled.  Adjusting this to allow downloads form tis zone as it should have been when the profile was setup resolved the issue.
