Have a look at 'wget', it's usually available in *nix distributions and
should be capable of what you want.
It turns out it's even available for windows
However, you will have to play with wget's options in order to make it
behave exactly as you want it (some stuff should be ignored, e.g. links
Actually, you could start playing with this
wget -r -P doc -E -nH -k -p -R '*\?*' http://wiki.lyx.org/pmwiki.php
but I'm not sure the CSS-files and images will be downloaded properly.
PS. If your site is big, it'll take a while to download the whole thing so
I recommend you try it on a simple test installation first.
