Download a file using asp.net

Hi there,
I'm using Visual Studio 2008. Im have a web form that creates a file to a sub directory:
Dim path As String = HttpContext.Current.Request.PhysicalApplicationPath.ToString() + "Files\" + source + "_" + Format(Gldate, "MMddyyyy") + ".txt"
once this file gets created i need to have a way for the user to download it. After i did a quick search online i found that a Generic Handler can be an option but haven't use it before and wont know how to call it =(
Can you point me to the right direction?
Thanks!
