Mandrake 10 comes with bittorrent.
If you're using the standard 3 cd community edition the rpm's are on cd3....
put cd3 in your cd drive....
cp bittorrent-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm /root/
cp bittorrent-gui-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm /root/
rpm -Uhv bittorrent-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uhv bittorrent-gui-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm
the version numbers in the files "may" be different. Probably not though but check to make sure.
bittorent is now installed......have fun.
p.s.-you can also run Azureus on linux since it runs on java...thats a little more involved and the info is here --> http://azureus.sourceforge.net/howto_linux.php
I personally prefer azureus but as a newbie it might be better to stick with Brams original client.
