Need Help with Torrents


I installed Fedora linux on my computer, and I loved it at first. After a little while, though, I realized I couldn't play any of my music, I couldn't go to certain websites, and installing anything was extremely hard. I had a torrent download I used to get windows 7, but I can't get torrents to work because I can't install anything on Fedora. Can someone post a download link for some kind of torrent and specific instructions on how to do it?

Also, is there any way I could install everything using a thumb drive? DVD-R's and CD's don't work because CD's aren't big enough and DVD's keep showing up an error message.

If you are new to Linux you might be better off installing Ubuntu.

I didn't even want to get linux. I was gonna download Windows 7 Ultimate but my idiot friend convinced me to download this, and now I can hardly ever start up Firefox or chrome without it crashing.

And I just want something that can open torrent files so I can switch back. I tried getting Ktorrent but it didn't work right. Couldn't install it.

So what you want from us is to guide you how to illegally download Windows 7 using Linux?

No, I just need a torrent software. I already had Windows 7 Ultimate, but I can't make it work with linux. Only other way I know is how my friend did it.

If you already have Windows 7 you don't need Linux at all to install it, you also don't need torrent software. Put in your DVD and install it.

It won't start up. I've used a torrent download before and it did work. Is there any torrent software I can use on Fedora? That's all I want to know.

Okay, how about this. You don't ask questions, or give me music downloads, just give me a torrent software I can use. Is that too much to ask for?

I am here volunteering my time. Therefore I may ask if you will do illegal things with my advice. By the way, I have deleted how to do it, and will put you up to my ignore list.
