2) I can't get it to pay attention to the 'wgetrc' file. All of the help I have seen for placing this file relates to unix. (e.g. from the sample
    wgetrc file:

    (## Wget initialization file can reside in /usr/local/etc/wgetrc
    ## (global, for all users) or $HOME/.wgetrc (for a single user).

Looking further, i found one location that says to simply make sure the wgetrc file is in the same location from where you run the wget file. i
    am using windows xp and i run wget from the command line.  i put the
wgetrc in both the C: and desktop locations. I use the sample wgetrc
    file that I found with a few modifications

    So, where can i put this file.
It finds it via the WGETRC environment variable.
Here's how I do it using two files:
A batch file with these 4 lines (download.bat):

SET WGETRC=c:\path\to\wgetrc\file\wgetrc.txt
cd \path\to\wgetrc\executable
wget "http://abc.xyz.com/something.html";

And the wgetrc.txt file where I put all options (in c:\path\to\wgetrc\file\wgetrc.txt)
3) once i put the file in the proper spot, how do i list the url i want it
    to visit?

That's listed in the last line of download.bat - see above. Just run download.bat.

You can have several different wgetrc,.txt config files for different wget sessions running simultaneously.
