That was cruel, manthram

s9722, I guess you want a peer to peer file sharing app, instead of something to help network local linux and windows pcs together.

Search sourceforge.org for a large list of the popular ones. I think if you have faster than a 56K you might be interested in BitTorrent.

Kazza is gay from all I've heard, at least try KazaaLite. Also, either would need Wine to run in linux, better to get something compiled for linux, not windows.

I have no p2p apps! Waiting for uni broadband connection first...

Get GKrellm and some themes for a nice monitoring app.

yeah that happenes. whenever you are trying to install a X based application it asks for alot of dependencies. one cant help but find a suitable application compatabile with your exsisting environment or install all the dependencies
