Hi,
Thanks for your response. I downloaded the following file only:
Quote:
ubuntu_13_04_desktop_amd64_iso

rokytnji has already posted the links I would have posted ( #9 )

Oh, is this a typo?

Code:
ubuntu_13_04_desktop_amd64_iso
                          ^   
                          ^

Do you have a torrent client for your current system? Just use the file menu and select "open" and then navigate to where you have placed the torrent file. The torrent client should then download your iso file.

I my experience the most common torrent client ( installed by default ) seems to be transmission

I honestly don't remember if it was installed by default in Ubuntu 9.10

Simplest solution, use terminal

Code:
transmission-gtk
if that fails, it will probably tell you how to install it, but here it is anyway

Code:
sudo apt-get install transmission-gtk
Once installed, it might be easier to simply re-download the torrent file
Hopefully your browser will pop up a prompt "Open with .. save as"
Open with transmission

Alternatively, download direct from http or ftp.
But it is much more polite to use the torrent, as this helps keep down the cost
