I have a basic linux server (that is not connected to the internet) that I would like to install mysql 5.0. My linux version is Debian linux (Sarge 3.1). Since this is an older version on linux, the mysql that comes packaged is 4.1. So I would like to install the binary files and install 5.0.

My issue is that my only computer that is connected to the internet is a windows machine (XP) and whenever I try and download any of the mysql .tar.gz files, it gets saved as a .tar.tar file. Whenever I try to do anything with that file (in linux) I get lots of errors. Is this a windows setting? How can I download the file correctly?
