It will be in whatever directory you were in when you ran the command..

If you cannot find it then do this

updatedb

Then when that is done updating the search database

locate downloadlink.tar.gz

Do this

- cd /root/ (means change directory) or to the place you want to download the file
- wget http://blah.com/blah_file.zip
- ls /root/ (or whatever file you cd'ed to)
The above is LS in lowercase and will list all of the files in the directory you're in.

For some important SSH commands, see this: http://knowledge.phirefast.com/?q=node/5

either that or type:

history

then follow your trail
Excellent idea. But my hopes are that GH will learn some commands.

mv filename /home/username/

Would be good to do:

Chown username:username filename

Gotta give them permission to use the file :)
