wget not downloading image

when I want to retrive a page off the Internet, I usually use
wget http://www.whatever.html
but if whatever.html has some images, it does not get them, I has the same problem with debian, but their I run the command from as root and it worked, what up?

I don't want to seem rude, but does RTFM mean anything? Have you checked wget's help page?

wget --help
has the answer to your question.

In this case, try using
wget -p http://www.whatever.html
I'll leave it to you to look up what it does & why.

I'm not trying to be a jerk (or worse) - it's just that like most Linux commands, wget has too many options to try to remember them all. As long as you can remember the '--help' option, you can easily find out what other options are available (and, usually, what they do).
