What is this box going to have in it? Do you mean the open/save as... dialog box? That just comes up when the browser requests a file it doesn't know how to handle. All you need to do to allow users to download PDF files is to provide them with a list of them or a link to them. They can save it locally or view inline in the browser if they have the appropriate Acrobat viewer installed.
