magnet link to torrent

Ihave 32-bit debian squeeze and the browser I use is iceweasel to download movie files through bittorrent and extracting via ktorrent. Some of the sites only allows a magnet link. I shall appreciate being shown a good tutorial describing how to use this. Thanks.
Prasanta Rudra.

Easiest way is to just copy the magnet link url and add it to ktorrent.

Or you can edit some about:config entries in Iceweasel:
