Selecting a Folder for Save As

I have an application, where the user can select multiple files to download. Instead of naming them separately, i want to give the users an option to Select a local folder where all the files would be saved. The <input type ="file" ..> cannot do the trick since it is limited to a file name and not a folder.
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

The only thing I can think of is tell the person to select a file in that folder and then on the server side, rip off the file and save it that way. I do not think there is anyway around it.
I agree. Here's the link:
