I'm glad you got it working, but sorry that you had to spend so much of
your time manually fixing things. I think it boils down to your version of
"wget". For some reason it doesn't download files using the same name
convention as later versions do. I have limited experience with wget. What
version do you have? Perhaps I can fix some things, but I'm not very
confident... :(
