I use Azureus. It is Java based program and it is very easy to use. Java programs works in any OS that Sun Microsystems have ported Java to.

you can use bittorrent, bittornado, azureus, etc. if you have a webserver with php and mysql, you can use torrentflux, which is a really handy application. i think the linux dc++ client is just called dc.

There are a few ways to start downloading torrents. One way is setup the web browser to automatically load up Azureus and start downloading the torrent. Another way is copy the link or URL and paste it in the URL box in Azureus. Azureus does have a way to access P2P servers and IRC. Really Azureus is very easy to use. If you think Azureus is hard than you are an idiot.

I suggest buying a Google Hack book to help you search for Linux topics and as well as hard to find items like torrents and several others. I recommend using BitTorrent to only download Linux distribution ISOs instead of illegal files.

I am all up for azureus. It is one of the best torrent clients I have ever seen. The one bundled with suse - ktorrent allows you a single torrent download. Where as azureus allows you multiple with all kinda graphical information.

Yes use Azureus. Try configuring your browser. Or just paste the URL in the Azureus windows.

No the i386 rpms should work. try finding the main Azureus website. (Just google Azureus)
