I'm still not sure what you want. Do you want an html page to show up
that has a reference to a cgi where that cgi lists the other pages that
can be downloaded? You'd make the html page as normal using l2h with
the reference to the cgi.
The cgi then plays out the list of available download pages, referencing
the page to download. If the reference is to a .zip, I tink the browser
would give the user a chance to download it.
