Okay - I just downloaded nTorrent on my laptop; it's actually, surprisingly easy to run. All you need, on your end, is to install a Java runtime environment (check in Aptitude for the standard JRE - I set up contrib and non-free repos in my /etc/apt/sources.list file).
After you download nTorrent-bin-20071220.tar.bz2, go into the directory where you downloaded it, and do the following:
To untar the package...
$ tar xjf nTorrent-bin-20071220.tar.bz2
To run it...
$ java -jar nTorrent.jar
