Use an InterMap link -- define a new InterMap reference 
(in local/localmap.txt) for each folder you want to be able 
to access.  So, if the existing files are at   http://somehost/download/,
you can set up an intermap link as:

   MISServer         http://somehost/download/

Then authors can refer to the files by writing "MISServer:file.ext"
and it'll automatically be translated to http://somehost/download/file.ext . 

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/CustomInterMap for details.  
Or, send us more details and we can help set it up.  :-)
