I used to do that too, then I discovered drush which works with update
status to get the recommended release version and check that out for
you. it is positively painless. the command to install panels is:
drush pm install panels
that it. drush downloads (or cvs checkout - your choice) the files to
sites/all/modules or to a multisite depending on your config and you
are ready to activate the module.
i will be publishing a drush screencast soon.
