You can suggest a filename in the http header, I suppose you could try 
putting a full path into this, but I suspect browser security is going to 
cause it to be ignored.

Realistically, I think you are going to need to use a signed applet to 
manage downloads and uploads in this way, this would have access to the 
local file system and would give you the control you need.
