trouble installing rtorrent


I need a good command line torrent client to run on my server (to host quite a few torrents) and from what I found rtorrent seems to be the best. I seem to be having a bit of trouble though. I'm running Cent OS 4.4

How would I find such a repository? Or would I need a magic genie for that too?
