Sorry I forgot to answer this part.. base_path() would solve it in your
example <?php print base_path(). file_directory_path() .'/whatever.zip'; ?>
but it's a wrong approach, file_create_url() is the correct function to use
here as it will honor the private/public download option in the site

So a typical way to generate a download link to a file is: l(t('Download'),
file_create_url($filepath)); where $filepath is the path to the file
relative to the files directory.
