How did you install it? Depending on the method, it will be found in someplace like /usr/bin.

However, one typically never directly opens the program directly. It is started with a *.torrent file that you download for the SW you want to install.

Google has LOTs of good links for stuff on how it all works

As for how bittorrent works, Google and Wikipedia can be your friend in finding out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent

The information and pictures at the link should clear this up quite simply.
