Are all those HowTo's in or under the same directory? If so, try using
ftp to download that directory with ".tar.gz" appended to its name.

For example, if the directory is
you could try the following:

Q> ftp
Q> User: ftp
Q> Password:
Q> cd /pub/linux
Q> get docs.tar.gz docs.tgz

That should get you an archive containing the entire structure...
