For a `real' header:

print <<HTTP; Content-Type: text/html Refresh: 0;URL=http://www.MySite.DOM/myfile.tar.bz2 <html> <head><title> tnx </title></head> <body><h1> thank you </h1></body> </html> HTTP

To save some CPU cycles, you can make that into an "unparsed" file (on my Apache box, by putting a .http extension on it) with the HTTP headers and the HTML together. The user sees only an HTML page, but there's this magic when they load it from your server that gives them the file.
