Browser security is going to keep you from accomplishing this in any
graceful manner. Writing files directly to the client machine from a
web application without user interaction is almost impossible these
days unless you set up a special trust from the browser. Thank
goodness, because I've had enough trouble with spyware getting on my
machine even with the tightening security restrictions.

If you're dealing with Internet Explorer only, I think that you might
want to look into "HTML Applications" (.hta files) which will enable
you to place client side scripts that can read and write to the client
machine. I think that you will need to set up a trust in IE for each
client to make this work.
