How save website locally?

How can I save a HTML website (EXACTLY) that is on the internet to my local machine? I've tried to use the browser to save the pages but there are a few visual "quirks" and it stores the images, etc... in individual folders for each page. Is there a free program to do it?

By the way, it's a legit request. My client got permission from the site owner to "clone" it as the basis for his website (because he is a product distributor for the sites owner.)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Robert,
there are set of web downloaders that will let you download a full site like the one frankly mentioned nut if you needed an exact clone you'd better get a copy from the FTP since this will be the only untouched exact copy
the only downside to website cloners that they tend to modify the structure, file references links etc.. Since an uploaded site would be different way from just file browsing
local files, especially if there were any dynamic or cms parts
what I usually do in such cases, if the site didn't have many   Pages/files I use firefox view source, copy and paste it then download the scripts and css files manually with same structure, might take me a bit longer especially at first but it ensures I have an untouched copy of the pages

Any idea how to make it store the images locally? I checked the source and it's pointing to the www address for the images. Thanks.
