    html link question about linking to files for download

    Ok, here's my question:

    I made this php script that lives in a directory called music. Inside the music directory are a bunch of directories organized by artist. Inside those are folders for albums, and mp3 files.

    For the link, I do a printf() in php and put some html in there for the link. But when you click on a link to an mp3 file, it wants to automatically open up in windows media player. To actually download and save it somewhere, you have to right click it and say 'Save Target As...' but I want it to automatically be saved when you normal click it.

    Is this something that has to be changed on the server side or the....user side?
