If all you want is for them to hit the download page right after they
click SUBMIT, edit the part of the script that sends them to the confirmation page
to have the URL of the download page instead, and remove the part that sends
them from the confirmation page to the download page.

And if they need to sign up to download, make the email address a required field.
