you will need to follow the tutorials, there are some here in the turorial section.
The steps are
a form with the "action" pointing to a script page
the script will need to connect to your database using the username and password you give to it
you will need to use an insert function to add that email address to the database,
a mail script will then send the email that you want, also in tutorials
then you can use

header("Location: http://www.yourdomain/your download.html");
