How do dl disk image?

I've read posts on the forums that refer to our ability to download our disk images.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to do that, or point me to something that explains it.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.

From some posts here, I thought there was some special linod-y way to do it – a way to scp from our accounts on the host, etc. I don't really need it, but I thought that if the facility was there, I ought to learn how to use it.

I think that for me, booting Finnix and doing a compressed tar over scp would be the best way to go.
