Recursively downloading all files from a website's child directory using wget

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am trying to recursively download the contents of a particular directory (via http from a web server) using wget. The command I am using is: wget -r -l 0 --user=josh --ask-password http://morris.cs.example.com/files/Software/MySoftware/V2012_Linux wget then appears to download the contents of the parent directories rather than just the intended child directory (V2012_Linux). How do I modify my command to download only the contents of the child directory and also place it in a directory of my choosing? (HowTos)
