You should be conscious of something... Once Apache is serving a file, 
and you request it, no longer Apache is responsible of what you do with it.
In simple words, this just means that your Apache is working perfectly. 
You can request files, and receive them in your favourite browser.

It seems you're using Lynx, a text browser.
RTFM of Lynx to know how to save (download) a file, a complete URL or a 
link. This has nothing to do with Apache.
If that "I cannot download it" you report means that Lynx is reporting a 
SERVER problem, elaborate it further.
If your problem is you cant save it to disk (permissions, Lynx 
configuration, etc.) no Apache tweaking is going to fix it.
If your problem is you don't know how to download a file using Lynx, 
find the proper documentation.
