peer to peer application?


What is a good p2p app to use in linux, I would prefer something that is hub based since I am such a big fan of those on my old windows box. Does anyone have any good recommendations?

Thanks

update to mandrake 10.0. go to install software in Mandrake control center.

filter for bittorrent and let mandrake install for you. I have no idea if it is a good linux client or not but it works

(you can probably select the bit torrent client while doing the upgrade install)

I'm Using RHEL 4

I tried to install LimeWire, but the application crashes, and it locks up my whole desktop which forces me to restart. Are there any counterparts for RHEL 4?

Bit Torrent are for Fedora and Python?
