    If you are wanting to use the download manager from firefox, then as lOtz1009 says, DownThemAll or FlashGot firefox plugins work well.
    FlashGot works as a front end for wget allows you to choose whether you want to use wget or some other method.

    Thanks for your quick reply. But there is one more thing I need to know. Can they resume the paused dowload?

    If you are using the firefox plugin, yes.
    wget will resume if you explicitly tell it to.
    Open a terminal and type wget --h to get all the options.
    (If it's not installed, install it - it's in the repo.)

    I often use 'prozgui' . Its a download accelerator, although I use it more for its enhanced checksum implementation (and hence higher quality downloads) than I do for any acceleration function.

    FatRat does a good job once you have integrated it with flashgot in firefox.FatRat supports even rapidshare :-)
