I agree, use the mirror command http://www.sunsite.org.uk/packages/mirror/

DOS did have the -s:filename command where you could specify a file and have
the contents as such:-
Lcd ...
Cd ...
Mput *

But I'm not sure if this option is available in linux.

Use lftp, specifically its "mirror" option. I've used that very successfully
in the past. I can't remember the exact details, mind.
